Chlorpyrifos and n-hexane will be considered for possible listing by the DARTIC at its next meeting scheduled for Wednesday, November 29, 2017 beginning at 10 a.m. at the California Environmental Protection Agency, located at 1001 I Street in Sacramento.  Chlorpyrifos will be considered for possible listing based on the developmental toxicity endpoint.  n-Hexane will be considered for possible listing based on the developmental, male and female reproductive toxicity endpoints

Chlorpyrifos was previously considered by the DARTIC in 2008, but was not added to the Proposition 65 list at that time.  Substantial new, relevant data on developmental toxicity have become available since the chemical was previously considered for listing.
