During the comment period on the original proposal, OEHHA received comments regarding the description of the conclusions by various scientific bodies regarding the carcinogenicity of glyphosate.OEHHA is addressing the points raised in these comments by:

(1) separating the description of the conclusion reached by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) from the description of the conclusions reached by other authorities;

(2) more closely aligning the description of the conclusion reached by US EPA with the language US EPA used in its conclusion; and

(3) changing the modifier of the term “risk” in a manner that accounts for the diverging conclusions US EPA and other authorities reached

A copy of the full proposed regulatory text (new sections 25607.48 and 25607.49), reflecting the modification, is provided as Attachment 1.
