Research Project: Crop Grouping Classification Petition Review

Location: Sustainable Agricultural Systems Laboratory

Project Number: 0500-00007-113-01-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 1, 2014
End Date: Dec 31, 2018

Objective:
To review IR-4 crop grouping petitions to EPA and who will utilize the information to create regulatory documents as proposed rules published in the Federal Register (FR) for public comment. Finalize the proposals to publish in the FR as regulations.

Approach:
Determine the need to develop a regulatory document and to add background information so that EPA’s Health Effects Division Chemistry Advisory Council (ChemSAC) has a thorough understanding of the proposals and any regulatory or health-related issues that may result from the execution of the final regulations. This will be done thru the extensive review of literature acquired from the USDA National Agricultural Library.
