EPA Makes It Easier to Find Information on Pesticide Registration Review Actions
On May 21, 2019, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that “to increase transparency and ensure information is easily accessible,” it has created a new web-based table of the most recent pesticide registration review actions that contains a list of the registration review actions EPA has taken over the current fiscal year, including the chemical name, docket number, and public comment period when applicable. EPA will update the table each time a registration review action is published. Stakeholders and the public can now quickly locate and sort through the following information for each active ingredient with a recent registration review action:
- The docket number (with a direct link to the docket);
- Comment period deadline (if applicable);
- Case number;
- Designated division;
- Registration review action type; and
- Contact information for the chemical review manager.
The new table also provides direct links to dockets, making it easy to access supporting information and documents related to a pesticide’s registration review. EPA states that it plans to update continuously this table as new registration review actions occur.
