Pesticide News Story: EPA Continues to Meet Performance Measures for Pesticide Reregistration

For Release: September 5, 2008

In a Federal Register Notice published on September 3, 2008, EPA announced its progress in meeting the Agency’s performance measures and goals for pesticide reregistration during fiscal year 2007. The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) requires EPA to publish information about the Agency’s annual achievements in this area. This notice discusses the integration of tolerance reassessment with the reregistration process, and describes the status of various regulatory activities associated with reregistration and tolerance reassessment. The notice gives total numbers of chemicals and products reregistered, tolerances reassessed, Data Call-Ins issued, and products registered under the ‘‘fast-track’’ provisions of FIFRA. The notice also contains the Agency’s schedule for completing reregistration eligibility decisions for specific pesticides during fiscal year 2008. This Federal Register Notice as well as notices from previous years are available on EPA’s pesticide reregistration progress and status reports Web site.
