Electronic Reading Room

Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.

The Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments of 1996, established the requirement for electronic reading room availability of any records processed and disclosed in response to a FOIA request that “the agency determines have become or are likely to become the subject of subsequent requests for substantially the same records.” This mandate created an opportunity for the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) to provide efficient affirmative access to a broad collection of pesticide regulatory records, and health and environmental effects information that otherwise would have to be sought through a formal petitioning of the Agency under FOIA.

The OPP FOIA Electronic Reading Room has two components for frequently requested records, however no new records are currently being added to the repositories:

OPP’s evaluations are called science reviews or data evaluation records (DERs). In the Science Review Repository you will find citations to over 30,000 science reviews previously released or likely to be requested under FOIA.
