Discussion of Key Issues from October 21, 2004, Full PPDC Meeting

The following notes summarize remarks, suggestions and recommendations offered primarily by the non-EPA Registration Review Workgroup members who participated in the workgroup meeting on December 8, 2004, and an additional comment received in February 2005. EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) will consider these recommendations in developing procedures for the registration review program.

A. Data Call-In's (DCIs)

B. Public Participation Procedures
What types of information would be helpful to stakeholders early in the process?
How/when should EPA inform the public of activity, such as issuing a DCI, that might occur after publishing the schedule but before the Agency places registration review information in the case docket? This time interval could be a year or more.
Need for flexibility – how to tailor opportunities for public participation to the circumstances? E.g., public participation for "E-Z off ramp" cases.
C. Emerging Issues/"Immediate Action" Chemicals
How to handle risks of concern as they emerge outside of registration review.
