Go to downloads

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is the lead agency for implementation of Proposition 65.1 As part of its duties, OEHHA has authority to adopt, amend and repeal regulations related to the Act, including safe harbor levels for listed chemicals.2

OEHHA is considering amending the existing regulation to clarify that the reasonably anticipated rate of intake or exposure to a listed chemical must be calculated as the arithmetic mean of daily intake or exposure for product users.

As a starting point for discussion, OEHHA is providing draft regulatory language and explanatory information for the possible amendment. These are pre-regulatory documents that could change substantially prior to the commencement of a formal rulemaking. Additional opportunities for public comment will be provided during the formal rulemaking process.

The workshop will be held on October 19, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. in the Auditorium in the Elihu Harris state building at 1515 Clay Street in Oakland, California.

Interested parties are encouraged to attend the workshop and participate in the discussion. Comments should be submitted in writing to the address noted below by 5:00 p.m. on November 17, 2015. Comments received during the public comment period will be posted on the OEHHA web site after the close of the comment period. Electronic files submitted should not have any form of encryption.
