US EPA renames re-registration division
The US EPA Office of Pesticide Programs’ special review and re-registration division has been renamed the pesticide re-evaluation division. The new name more accurately reflects the division’s activities, the EPA points out. All re-registration eligibility decisions for active ingredients have been completed and product re-registrations are on track for completion in the next few years. Only a few special reviews remain to be formally concluded. The EPA started its pesticide registration review programme in 2006 ( Agrow No 506, p 14).
