Comments on DPR’s draft Risk Management Directive for 1,3-Dichloropropene

On August 30, 2016, the Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) provided the Office
of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) with a draft risk management
directive (RMD) for 1,3-dichloropropene (1,3-D) that relates to exposures of bystanders
(nearby workers and residents) and cancer risk. As stated in Food and Agricultural
Code (FAC) Section 14023, DPR is to consult with OEHHA regarding the need for, and
appropriate degree of, control measures with regard to pesticides identified as Toxic Air
Contaminants (TAC), in this case 1,3-D.

OEHHA has provided a number of comments on DPR’s proposal for regulatory mitigation for 1,3-Dichloropropene (1,3-D).
