Extension of Comment Period - Notice of Intent to List Bisphenol-A
On January 25, 2013, the California Environmental Protection Agency’s (Cal/EPA) Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) published a notice in the California Regulatory Notice Register (Register 2013, No. 4-Z) announcing its intent to list Bisphenol A as known to the State to cause reproductive toxicity (developmental endpoint) under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.1
The January 25th notice initiated a 30‑day public comment period that was scheduled to close on February 25, 2013. OEHHA has received a request from several interested parties, including the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the California Chamber of Commerce, the California League of Food Processors, and the California Manufacturers and Technology Association, seeking an extension of the comment period to allow for the submission of scientific information for Bisphenol A. OEHHA hereby extends the public comment period until 5 p.m., Wednesday, March 27, 2013.
We encourage you to submit comments via e-mail, rather than in paper form. Comments transmitted by e-mail should be addressed to P65Public.Comments@oehha.ca.gov with “NOIL-Bisphenol A” in the subject line. Hard copy comments may be mailed, faxed, or delivered in person to the addresses below:
