06/30/2011 -

 -EPA is expected to post a preliminary human health assessment of chlorpyrifos on its Website  by the end of Friday, July 1. This is the first full human health assessment for a pesticide to be completed under EPA’s Registration Review program, which was first initiated for chlorpyrifos in 2009 and which is expected to conclude in 2015.

EPA will post the preliminary assessment in downloadable form via the EPA Website which will open a 60-day public comment period beginning on July 6. Dow AgroSciences plans to request a 60-day extension to this comment period.

Dow AgroSciences has prepared an initial position statement. We’ll follow this up with more detailed information once we have thoroughly reviewed the preliminary assessment.
