Announcement of Chemicals Selected by OEHHA for Consideration for Listing by the Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification Committee and Request for Relevant Information on the Developmental and Reproductive Toxicity of These Chemicals: Bisphenol-A, Chlorpyrifos, Chromium, DDE, Sulfur dioxide

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 1986* (Proposition 65). The Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification Committee (DARTIC) of OEHHA’s Science Advisory Board serves as the State’s qualified experts for rendering an opinion whether a chemical has been clearly shown through scientifically valid testing according to generally accepted principles to cause reproductive toxicity. The chemicals identified by the DARTIC are added to the Proposition 65 list, which must be updated annually.

OEHHA has selected five chemicals for the Committee’s review for possible listing under Proposition 65 and is initiating the development of hazard identification materials on these chemicals…
