#EPA Action to Terminate #Endosulfan | Pesticides | US EPA #kerala #ChemE What the fuck Sharad Pawar needs??

EPA requested public comment on the 2002 Endosulfan Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED). In response to the RED, the registrants submitted a number of new required studies. In November 2007, EPA requested public comment on its updated endosulfan human health and ecological risk assessments based in part on the new data. The Agency also requested comment at that time on an updated endosulfan use analysis and preliminary benefits assessment. In May 2009, EPA requested comment on endosulfan impact assessments for eight crops and requested additional information on the importance of endosulfan use in agriculture. The Agency also convened an independent external peer review by the FIFRA Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) to obtain input on pesticides like endosulfan that have persistent, bio-accumulative, and toxic characteristics.
