of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition
The Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant (DART) Identification
Committee of OEHHA's Science Advisory Board advises and assists
OEHHA in compiling the list of chemicals known to the State to cause
reproductive toxicity, which is mandated by Health and Safety Code
Section 25249.8. The DART Identification Committee serves as the
State's qualified experts for rendering an opinion whether a chemical
has been clearly shown through scientifically valid testing according
to generally accepted principles to cause reproductive toxicity.
25, 2000, OEHHA requested information in relation to the preparation
of a draft hazard identification document on metribuzin, a chemical
to be considered by the DART Identification Committee for possible
addition to the Proposition 65 list. The data call-in period ended
on March 29, 2000. No information or data were received on metribuzin.
OEHHA requested information in relation to the preparation of draft
hazard identification documents on cyclohexanol and 2,4-DP (dichloroprop)
22, 2001. The data call-in period for both chemicals ended on
August 6, 2001. No information or data were received on cyclohexanol.
Information was submitted on 2,4-DP (dichloroprop) which was considered
in the preparation of its draft hazard identification document.
OEHHA has prepared the draft hazard identification documents for
metribuzin, cyclohexanol and 2,4-DP (dichloroprop) and announces
the availability of the draft documents entitled: "Evidence
on the Developmental and Reproductive Toxicity of Metribuzin,"
"Evidence on the Developmental and Reproductive Toxicity of
Cyclohexanol," and "Evidence on the Developmental and
