→ Notice of Availability of draft human health and/or ecological risk assessments for chlorethoxyfos and phosmet

Comments Close:

This notice announces the availability of EPA's draft human health and ecological risk assessments for the registration review of chlorethoxyfos and the draft human health risk assessments for the registration review of diazinon and phosmet, and opens a public comment period on these documents. Registration review is EPA's periodic review of pesticide registrations to ensure that each pesticide continues to satisfy the statutory standard for registration, that is, the pesticide can perform its intended function without unreasonable adverse effects on human health or the environment. Due a docketing error for the phosmet draft risk assessment issued in a previous Federal Register notice, this notice is announcing the availability of the phosmet in order to give the public a full opportunity for review and comment. The EPA is initiating a 60-day comment period for phosmet.
