US EPA allows more time on inert proposals
The US EPA is to allow more time for comment on its proposed options for disclosing the identity of pesticide active ingredients. The Agency issued an advance notice of proposed rulemaking in December, with a comment period ending on February 22nd ( Agrow No 583, p 14). There were two requests from industry for a 90-day extension to allow more time to gather views on the proposals. The EPA has agreed to a 60-day extension to April 23rd.
