RFCI requests OEHHA to determine that exposures to DINP in vinyl flooring products do not present significant cancer risks under Proposition 65, and do not require a warning. The basis for the request is that RFCI estimates the potential lifetime average daily exposures from inhalation, ingestion, and dermal absorption to installers and consumers would be below the level posing no significant risk, as defined in section 25703. This SUD request is limited to exposures to DINP only. Exposure to other listed substances, if any, that may be present in the vinyl flooring products will not be reviewed by OEHHA in the context of this request.
In accordance with the process set forth in section 25204(f)1, a public hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday, February 25, 2015, in the Sierra Hearing Room on the 2nd Floor of the California Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters, 1001 I Street, Sacramento, CA 95814, as an opportunity for public comment on this request for a safe use determination. The hearing will be held between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
The public may also submit written comments on this request. In order to be considered, OEHHA must receive comments by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 25, 2015. We encourage you to submit comments in electronic form, rather than in paper form. Comments transmitted by e-mail should be addressed to P65Public.Comments@oehha.ca.gov. Please include “SUD – Vinyl Floor Products” in the subject line. Comments submitted in paper form may be mailed, faxed, or delivered in person to the address below.
