US EPA extends comment period on policy shift

The US EPA has extended for another two months the comment period on its proposed policy change in assessing the risks of pesticides to agricultural workers and their children. The Agency aims to extend the risk assessment procedures developed under the Food Quality Protection Act to occupational and non-food pesticide use ( Agrow No 582, p 16). The policy shift had been open to public comment until February 8th, but the EPA has decided to extend it until April 12th in response to requests from stakeholders.
