A meeting of the Carcinogen Identification Committee
(CIC) was held on November 16, 2000,
at the Elihu Harris State Office Building in Oakland, California.
Below are the transparencies of presentations made by staff of
California Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Environmental
Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA). The segments of the agenda covered
with this material include the "Consideration of Chemicals
Known to Cause Cancer." The CIC identified MX(3-chloro-4-(dichloromethyl)-5-hydroxy-2-(5H)-furanone)
for listing as known to the state to cause cancer. The CIC also
discussed the "Revised Criteria For Identifying Chemicals
For Listing As 'Known To The State To Cause Cancer'". The
Chair of the CIC agreed to accommodate some of the suggested changes
to the criteria. Following the revision of the criteria, the document
will be released through the OEHHA website at www.oehha.ca.gov.
