Dow AgroSciences Offers a Brief Review of EPA’s Preliminary Chlorpyrifos Human Health Assessment

07/27/2011 -

-In its upcoming submission to the EPA docket, Dow AgroSciences will be responding in detail to all of the parts of the draft chlorpyrifos human health assessment that the Agency has posted thus far. EPA’s assessment, which is part of the Registration Review process, is highly technical. The assessment contains detailed scientific information offered in eight different documents and associated appendices totaling over 1200 pages. Our science team at Dow AgroSciences is now conducting a thorough evaluation of all of the Agency’s assumptions, assessment methods and conclusions.

As distinct from our yet-to-be submitted technical comments for use by EPA in preparing its revised chlorpyrifos assessment, however, Dow AgroSciences is offering the following initial brief review and perspectives of the materials that the Agency has posted thus far. These perspectives are offered in response to stakeholder interest.
