On September 16, 2011, OEHHA published a notice in the California Regulatory Notice Register proposing an amendment to Title 27, California Code of Regulations, Section 25707, to remove the reference to hexavalent chromium in Section 25707(b)(4) as posing no significant risk when ingested.
Publication of the notice initiated a 45‑day public comment period that was scheduled to close on October 31, 2011. OEHHA has received a request from the American Chemistry Council and the California Manufacturers and Technology Association for an extension of the public comment period. OEHHA hereby extends the public comment period on this proposed amendment to 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, November 30, 2011.
