Pesticide News Story: DDVP Objections and Hearing Request Denied

For Release: July 24, 2008

EPA has denied the Natural Resource Defense Council’s objections to and requests for a hearing on a prior order that denied their petition asking EPA to revoke all tolerances for dichlorvos (DDVP).  The Agency's order became effective when it was published in the Federal Register on July 23, 2008. EPA completed the interim reregistration eligibility decision for DDVP in June 2006 and, following the organophosphate cumulative risk assessment, completed the final Reregistration Eligibility Decision in July 2006. Consistent with that decision, certain DDVP pesticides can still be used safely around the home as long as the directions on product labeling are followed. For more information about DDVP, consult www.epa.gov/pesticides/reregistration/ddvp.  The Federal Register notice is available on the Web site.
