Meeting Synopsis and Slide Presentations from the Carcinogen Identification Committee Meeting Held on November 19, 2007

A meeting of the Carcinogen Identification Committee (CIC) was held on November 19, 2007, at the California Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters Building in Sacramento, California. Below are links to the slide presentations made by staff of the California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA). The segments of the agenda covered by this material include the “Prioritization of Chemicals for Carcinogen Identification Committee Review” and “Discussion of Next Prioritization Data Screen.”

The CIC met to consider three chemicals, N,N-dimethylformamide, marijuana smoke, and 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene, for possible preparation of hazard identification materials. By majority vote, the CIC advised OEHHA to proceed with preparing hazard identification materials for each of the three chemicals. On the advice of the CIC and considering input from the public, OEHHA will prepare cancer hazard identification materials for all three chemicals. A public notice announcing the data call-in period will be published in the California Regulatory Notice Register and posted on the OEHHA web site at www.oehha.ca.gov on December 21, 2007.
