Hazard Identification Materials for Bisphenol A.
The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is the lead agency for the implementation of the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 19861 (Proposition 65). The Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification Committee (DARTIC) advises and assists OEHHA in compiling the list of chemicals known to the State to cause reproductive toxicity as required by Health and Safety Code section 25249.8. The Committee serves as the state’s qualified experts for determining whether a chemical has been clearly shown through scientifically valid testing according to generally accepted principles to cause reproductive toxicity.
Bisphenol A (BPA) will be considered for possible listing based on female reproductive toxicity by the DARTIC at its next meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 7, 2015.
At this May 7 meeting, the DARTIC will consider whether BPA has been clearly shown by scientifically valid testing according to generally accepted principles to cause female reproductive toxicity. BPA is being brought to the DARTIC at this time, consistent with the committee’s request at its July 15, 2009 meeting to re-visit consideration of BPA if additional epidemiological or other specific types of data on reproductive and developmental toxicity became available. Substantial new epidemiological and toxicological data on BPA and female reproductive toxicity have become available since 2009, and thus OEHHA has assembled materials on BPA and female reproductive toxicity for the DARTIC’s consideration.
