Exemptions and Exceptions

The current WPS has exemptions and exceptions. EPA is continuing the exemption for immediate family members as we recognize the independence of the family farm and believe that farm family parents are in the best position to make decisions about the types of activities in which their children can safely engage.

EPA is proposing to modify the exemptions for crop advisor employees and for training of workers to address concerns for safety.

Read the details of the proposed changes and the rationale before you comment.

All your comments are welcome but we have specific questions for you on Exemptions and Exceptions:

A. Immediate Family

B. Crop Advisors and Employees

C. Revise the Exception to the Requirement for Workers to be Fully Trained before Entering Pesticide-Treated Areas
