Notice of Planned Rulemaking

Health & Safety Code section 25256.1 requires the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) to specify the hazard traits, environmental and toxicological end-points, and other relevant data that are to be included in the state’s Toxics Information Clearinghouse.  The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) will use information from the clearinghouse to help identify chemicals of concern in consumer products, pursuant to Health & Safety Code section 25252. 

In order to meet its requirements under Health & Safety Code section 25256.1, OEHHA is developing a pre-regulatory draft that will be provided to the public within the next several weeks for comment.  The pre-regulatory draft will be available on OEHHA’s website and will also be linked to the DTSC website.

Questions regarding this notice may be directed to Ms. Fran Kammerer of OEHHA’s legal office at (916) 445‑4693 or
