US state ends pesticide VOC review

The US California EPA’s Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) has completed a reassessment of over 700 pesticide products that was initiated in 2005 due to concerns over the release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The review applied to liquid agricultural and structural use pesticides for which the DPR did not have thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) data. It proposed the cancellation of nearly 100 product registrations in 2006 because registrants failed to supply the necessary data ( Agrow No 495, p 12). The reassessment initially covered 787 products from 218 registrants, but by May 2012 there were just 372 products from 131 registrants. The DPR says that it has acceptable TGA data or other information on these products to satisfy the reassessment requirement.
