Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
General Rule sec 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) finds that the adoption of the Conflict of Interest Code is exempt because CEQA applies only to projects that have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment. This rulemaking will not adversely impact the environment because the changes are simply of an administrative nature to conform with statutory requirements for reporting by the DTSC staff. The new classifications added provide consistency in disclosure requirements with job duties of other classes already required to report. The addition of personnel classifications listed would not result in limiting staff necessary for direct field response is a conflict of interest were to occur. Adequate substitute staff exists in these classifications to allow the duties to still occur if a particular staff person were to be recused from duty due to a conflict. Therefore, there will be no significant impact on DTSC's ability to carry out its mission of environmental protection.
