OEHHA Synthetic Turf Scientific Advisory Panel Meeting Notice
The second Synthetic Turf Scientific Advisory Panel Meeting is scheduled to be held on Friday, March 10, 2017. The meeting will be held in the Sierra Hearing Room at the CalEPA Headquarters building, 1001 I Street, Sacramento, CA. It will begin at 10 a.m. and will last until all business is conducted or until 5 p.m.
The Synthetic Turf Scientific Advisory Panel is a group of expert scientists that the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has convened to provide scientific advice on its Synthetic Turf Study. There are public meetings throughout the study period for members of the Panel to advise OEHHA on study plans, data interpretation, and reporting of study results.
The study assesses the potential health impacts associated with the use of synthetic turf and playground mats made of crumb rubber. OEHHA focuses on identifying chemicals that are released from synthetic turf from indoor and outdoor fields throughout California, and on estimating exposures to users of synthetic turf fields.
The meeting is open to the public and will be webcast. There will be a public comment period during the meeting.
Details of the meeting, including the agenda and briefing materials, will be posted at a later date.
