Overview of the June 2007 Draft List of Chemicals for Initial Tier 1 Screening
EPA sought public comment on a draft list of 73 pesticide chemicals that was published in a June 2007 Federal Register Notice (PDF) (18 pp, 131K, About PDF). The chemicals selected were the first to be considered for screening under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. This list should not be construed as a list of known or likely endocrine disruptors. Nothing in the approach for generating the initial list provides a basis to infer that any of the chemicals selected interfere with or are suspected to interfere with the endocrine systems of humans or other species.
The Final List of Initial Pesticide Active Ingredients and Pesticide Inert Ingredients to be Screened under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act was published on April 15, 2009 in the Federal Register.
The public comment period has closed.
