The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is the lead agency for the implementation of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65).

The Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification Committee (DARTIC) of OEHHA’s Science Advisory Board identifies chemicals for addition to the list of chemicals known to the State to cause reproductive toxicity, which is mandated by Health and Safety Code Section 25249.8.  The Committee serves as the “State’s qualified experts” for determining whether a chemical has been clearly shown, through scientifically valid testing according to generally accepted principles, to cause reproductive toxicity.

A public meeting of this committee will be held on Monday, December 10, 2007 at the California Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters Building, Byron Sher Auditorium, at 1001 I Street, Sacramento, California, beginning at 10:00 a.m. and continuing until all business has been conducted, or 5:00 p.m.  If you have special accommodation or language needs, please contact Cynthia Oshita at (916) 445-6900 or cynthia.oshita@oehha.ca.gov by December 3, 2007.  TTY/TDD/Speech-to-Speech users may dial 7-1-1 for the California Relay Service.

The tentative agenda for this meeting is as follows.  It should be noted that the order of items on the agenda is provided for general reference only.  The order in which items are taken up by the Committee is subject to change at the discretion of the Chair.  Because we anticipate a significant amount of public participation on these agenda items, please contact Cynthia Oshita at
