Public Workshops on Administrative Penalties Regulations to Evaluate Possible Revisions

The Department of Toxic Substances Control is currently holding a series of public workshops to discuss the current Administrative Penalties Regulations (22 CCR 66272.60-66272.69) to discuss possible revisions to these regulations. The first of these workshops was conducted last June 7, 2019 at DTSC’s Sacramento Regional Office. The next workshop will be held this coming August 7, 2019 at DTSC’s Chatsworth Regional Office and another one will be held on September 18, 2019 at DTSC’s Berkeley Regional Office. The purpose of these workshops is to inform the public and other stakeholders that DTSC is reviewing the current penalty regulations for possible revisions and to gather comments and opinions regarding what in the penalty regulations need to be reexamined and revised. DTSC would also present and gather information and comments about some alternative concepts that could go into the revisions.

For any questions or to submit comments regarding the current penalty regulations, please email PenaltyRegs@dtsc.ca.gov.
