Pesticides: EPA Should Take Steps to Improve Its Oversight of Conditional Registrations
J. Alfredo Gomez (au)
As of September 2010, more than 16,000 pesticides were registered for use in the U.S., according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). EPA reviews health and environmental effects data submitted by a company and may register a pesticide or, alternatively, grant a ńˇýconditional registrationńˇŁ for a pesticide under certain circumstances, even though some of the required data may not have been submitted or reviewed. The company must provide the missing data within a specified time. In 2010, environmental and other groups charged that EPA had overused conditional registrations and did not appear to have a reliable system to identify whether the required data had been submitted. This report examines the (1) number of conditional registrations EPA has granted and the basis for these; (2) extent to which EPA ensures that companies submit the required additional data and EPA reviews the data; and (3) views of relevant stakeholders on EPAńˇ╗s use of conditional registrations. Table and figure. This is a print on demand report.
