Extension of 15 Day Notice - MADL for Reproductive Toxicity For Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) by Oral Exposure

Notice of Addition of Documents and Information to Rulemaking File, OAL FILE No. Z-05-0614-06 Amendment to Title 22, California Code of Regulations, Section 12805, Specific Regulatory Levels: Chemicals Causing Reproductive Toxicity (Proposition 65 Maximum Allowable Dose Level (MADL) for Reproductive Toxicity for Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) by Oral Exposure) - Extends 15 day Notice

On August 17, 2005, the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) provided notice that documents and other information which the agency has relied upon in proposing the amendment to Title 22, California Code of Regulations, Section 12805, had been added to the rulemaking file and are available for public inspection and comment.

The August 17, 2005 notice identified relevant documents which had not been previously included in the Rulemaking File OAL FILE Z-05-0614-06, but that had been considered by OEHHA in establishing the proposed maximum allowable dose levels (MADLs) for DEHP by oral exposure. Of these documents, 15 citations for the proposed oral MADL were not included in the MADL support document cited in the Initial Statement of Reasons published on June 24, 2005: Proposition 65 Maximum Allowable Dose Level (MADL) for Reproductive Toxicity for Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) by Oral Exposure. These 15 citations were papers that became available to OEHHA after preparation of the MADL document was completed. OEHHA reviewed these papers as they became available, and determined that no revisions to the MADL documents were necessitated by these papers. Thus, these papers are sources of potentially relevant information that was considered by OEHHA but which did not directly contribute to the development of the MADLs and which were not cited in the MADL document and therefore were not included in the Initial Statement of Reasons.

The documents identified in the Notice of August 17, 2005, are available for inspection at the OEHHA’s office located at 1001 “I” Street, 19th Floor, Sacramento, CA from August 17, 2005 through September 15, 2005, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. If you have any comments regarding the documents and information related to the August 17 notice, OEHHA will accept written comments until September 15, 2005. All written comments must be submitted to OEHHA by mail, fax, courier or hand-delivered, no later than 5:00 p.m. on September 15, 2005, and addressed to:
