Input on selection of chemicals for biomonitoring (2009)
Two reports are available related to the selection of chemicals for biomonitoring by Biomonitoring California (also known as the California Environmental Contaminant Biomonitoring Program). These reports (released in 2009) relate to input Biomonitoring California solicited in 2008. One report summarizes state government staff input and the other report summarizes the findings from public participation activities.
- Staff Responses to State Government Query on Chemicals for Biomonitoring
This Biomonitoring California report summarizes state government staff input on which chemicals should be considered for biomonitoring. The report also summarizes state staff suggestions on criteria for chemical selection. The report distills and organizes the responses of state staff.
- Results of Public Participation Activities on What Chemicals Should Be Biomonitored in California
This report presents the results of Biomonitoring California public participation activities conducted to obtain early public input on the selection of chemicals for biomonitoring. Biomonitoring California facilitated public comment by holding workshops and teleconferences and conducting a survey. In addition to the main report, there are eight appendices that can be downloaded individually.
- Appendix 1. Chemicals Studied by the CDC Biomonitoring Program
- Appendix 2. Excerpts of Legislation on Chemical Selection
- Appendix 3. Agendas for Public Participation Workshops and Teleconferences
- Appendix 4A. Survey on Chemical Selection (English)
- Appendix 4B. Survey on Chemical Selection (Spanish)
- Appendix 5. Tabulation of Specific Chemicals and Chemical Classes Suggested for Biomonitoring
- Appendix 6. Criteria Suggesed for Selecting Chemicals to Biomonitor
- Appendix 7. Populations Identified by Survey Respondents, Workshop Participants, and Email Submissions
- Appendix 8. Chemicals Identified During Workshops and via Email
