Extension of comment period on the intent to adopt a No Significant Risk Level (NSRL) of 1100 micrograms per day for glyphosate
Proposition 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted as a ballot initiative in November 1986. The proposition protects the state's drinking water sources from being contaminated with chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and requires businesses to inform Californians about exposures to such chemicals.
Proposition 65 requires the state to maintain and update a list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.
OEHHA is requesting public comments on the Notice of Intent to List pentabromodiphenyl ether mixture [DE-71 (technical grade)] as known to the State to cause cancer under Proposition 65 via the authoritative bodies listing mechanism.
The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is the lead agency for the implementation of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement
