Pursuant to the requirements of Government Code Section 11346.8(c), and Section 44 of Title 1 of the California Code of Regulations, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is providing notice of changes made to proposed regulations, Title 22, California Code of Regulations, Sections 12705 and 12805, which were the subject of a regulatory hearing on July 23, 2001. These changes are in response to comments received regarding the proposed regulations. OEHHA has received oral and written comments on eight chemicals: arsenic; benzene, cadmium, di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP); lead; lead acetate; lead phosphate and lead subacetate. These comments are of a substantive nature regarding complex technical issues. In order to effectively and efficiently consider these comments, OEHHA will not be including these eight chemicals as part of this rulemaking package. OEHHA intends to promulgate regulatory levels for fifteen (15) chemicals at this time. The adoption of the regulatory levels for the remaining eight chemicals will be done at a later date.
If you have any comments regarding the proposed changes to the text of regulations, OEHHA will accept written comments between February 11, 2002 and February 27, 2002. All written comments must be submitted to OEHHA by mail, fax, courier or hand-delivery, no later than 5:00 p.m. on February 27, 2002, and addressed to:
