On September 7, 2007 the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) published a notice in the California Regulatory Notice Register (Register No. 2007, 36-Z) announcing the chemicals, bisphenol A, bromodichloromethane, caffeine, chlorpyrifos, chromium (hexavalent), DDE, methylisocyanate, and sulfur dioxide, that OEHHA will discuss with the Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification Committee (DARTIC) at its meeting on Monday, December 10, 2007 for possible future preparation of hazard identification materials.
OEHHA received a request to extend the original comment period to allow for the submittal of more complete and relevant information. OEHHA hereby extends the public comment period to 5 p.m., Tuesday, November 27, 2007. For comments submitted after the original close of the comment period, which was November 6, 2007, it is requested, but not required, that 11 copies be provided to facilitate distribution to the DARTIC in a timely manner.
Interested parties should keep in mind that the committee will not be making listing decisions at this meeting. OEHHA will be asking their advice concerning which chemicals warrant the preparation of hazard identification materials. Please submit comments relevant to that issue. An additional opportunity for the public to comment will be provided as chemicals are proposed for listing.
All comments, along with any supporting documentation, may be submitted to:
