Pesticide News Story: PPDC PRIA Process Improvement Workgroup to Meet April 29, 2008

For Release: April 18, 2008

On Tuesday, April 29, 2008, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs will host the tenth meeting of the Pesticide Program Dialogue Committee (PPDC) PRIA Process Improvement Workgroup. The objective of this workgroup is to identify and evaluate potential reforms to the pesticide registration process. The goal is to reduce the amount of time the Agency takes to process an application under the Pesticide Registration Improvement Renewal Act of 2007 (PRIA 2). The Agency will not compromise the scientific quality of its assessments as a means of reducing decision time review periods. The meeting will be in the lobby level Conference Center of the Potomac Yards building, located at 2777 S. Crystal Drive (One Potomac Yard), Arlington, Virginia. For directions see http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/contacts/officelocation.htm.
