The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65 or the Act), which is codified as Health and Safety Code section 25249.5 et seq., requires the Governor to publish, and update at least annually, a list of chemicals known to the State to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. The Act describes the mechanisms for administratively listing chemicals as known to the State to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity (Health and Safety Code section 25249.8).
On November 27, 2009, OEHHA published a notice in the California Regulatory Notice Register (Register 2009, No. 48-Z) soliciting information which may be relevant to the evaluation of spirodiclofen under consideration for possible listing within the context of the Proposition 65 administrative listing regulatory criteria in Title 27 of the California Code of Regulations section 25306 (formerly Title 22 of the California Code of Regulations section 12306.)
The publication of the notice initiated a 30 day public comment period which would have closed on January 11, 2010. OEHHA has received a request from an interested party seeking an extension of the comment period to allow for the submission of complete and relevant scientific information for spirodiclofen. OEHHA hereby extends the public comment period for spirodiclofen to 5 p.m., Monday, January 25, 2010.
