On June 27, 2008 the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) published a notice in the California Regulatory Notice Register (Register 2008, No. 27-Z) soliciting information relevant to the assessment of the evidence of developmental and reproductive toxicity for three chemicals (bromodichloromethane, caffeine, and methylisocyanate). OEHHA will review the materials submitted as it prepares hazard identification materials for the three chemicals, which will be presented to the Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification Committee (DART-IC) at future meetings for the Committee’s consideration for listing under Proposition 65. These three chemicals will not be considered by the DART-IC at its November 2008 meeting.
OEHHA has received a request to extend the comment period for caffeine to allow for the submittal of complete and relevant scientific information. OEHHA hereby extends the public comment period for caffeine to 5 p.m., Monday, October 27, 2008. Please note that the original 60 day public comment period for the other two chemicals, bromodichloromethane and methylisocyanate, will close as announced on August 26, 2008.
