This notice is brought to you by the OEHHA.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) proposes to add section 25904 to Title 27, Cal. Code of Regulations. This regulation would clarify the procedure and criteria OEHHA uses to list and de-list chemicals via the “Labor Code” listing mechanism of Proposition 651.
A public hearing will be held on March 21, 2014, at which time any person may present statements or arguments orally or in writing relevant to the action described in this notice. The public hearing will commence at 10:00 in the Coastal Hearing Room, California Environmental Protection Agency Building, 1001 I Street, 2nd Floor, Sacramento, California and will last until all business has been conducted, or until 12:00 noon.
This proposed regulation will provide information and clarification to the public regarding how OEHHA identifies chemicals for listing via the Labor Code. The proposed regulation would provide increased openness and transparency for businesses and others affected by these listings.
OEHHA has determined that the proposed regulation is neither inconsistent nor incompatible with existing state regulations because it would not change the existing mandatory requirements on businesses, state or local agencies and does not address compliance with any other law or regulation.
