PRN 2003-3: Procedural Guidance for EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs Procedures Concerning the Development, Modification, and Implementation of Policy Guidance Documents
EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) will use the procedures in this document for developing, modifying, and implementing its pesticide program policy guidance documents. These procedures have two goals.
- The first is to facilitate public participation in the development, modification, and implementation of OPP policy guidance documents.
- The second is to clarify that while such documents are non-binding policy statements and not legally binding rules, they nonetheless play an important role in helping to ensure a consistent starting point for OPP decision-making.
