California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment(OEHHA) has rescheduled a public hearing on a request for a Safe Use Determination (SUD) for the use of diisononyl phthalate (DINP) in Tandus Centiva ER3® modular vinyl carpet tile.
The request specifically seeks a determination that exposures to DINP in the carpet tile do not present significant cancer risks under Proposition 65 and do not require a warning. Fulbright & Jaworski LLP, a law firm with a very active Proposition 65 practice requested the SUD.
The public hearing was scheduled for February 25 but has been rescheduled to Thursday, February 19, 2015, in Room 10 of the Elihu Harris Building, 1515 Clay Street, Oakland CA 94612. The hearing provides an opportunity for the public to verbally comment on the SUD request. The hearing will be held between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm.
The public comment period for the SUD has been extended to March 11, 2015. Interested parties may also submit written comments on this request. OEHHA encourages submission of comments in electronic form, rather than in paper form. Comments transmitted by e-mail should be sent to: P65Public.Comments@oehha.ca.gov.
