ARA Co-Signs Coalition Comments to EPA Requesting Comment Extension
Jul 29 2022
ARA, as part of the Coalition of Organophosphate (OP) Registrants, sent a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP), requesting an extension of 120 days to comment on the petition filed by the United Farm Workers and others asking EPA to revoke all tolerances and cancel all registrations for 15 organophosphate pesticides.
ARA and the undersigned organizations say the extension is necessary to allow impacted stakeholders to adequately review and respond without impacting the practical timeline for the registration review process.
Following the coalition letter, the EPA granted a 45-day extension to the public comment period, which will now close Sept. 25.
