On July 2, 2004, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking announcing proposed amendments to the Title 22, California Code of Regulations (22 CCR) Sections 12705 and 12805. A public hearing was held on August 23, 2004. Written and oral testimony were accepted at the hearing. Written comments were also received during the 45-day public comment period, which ended on August 23, 2004. No written comments were received during the 45-day public comment period for the proposed No Significant Risk Level (NSRL) for 1,2-dichloropropane and the Maximum Allowable Dose Levels (MADLs) for 1,2-dibromo-3-chloropropane, disodium cyanodithioimidocarbonate, ethyl dipropylthiocarbamate, ethylene glycol monomethyl ether, ethylene glycol monomethyl ether acetate, methyl bromide as a structural fumigant, and thiophanate-methyl.
