US EPA drops pesticide export reform

The US EPA has concluded that there are no further opportunities to reduce the regulatory burden for exporters of pesticides and other chemicals. It has therefore decided to take no further action on chemical export notifications, according to the Agency’s latest progress report on last year’s call by President Barack Obama for government-wide regulatory reforms. The evaluation of options to reduce the burden and improve efficiencies for chemical exporters was included among 19 initiatives ear-marked for “longer term” action in the EPA’s plans last August ( Agrow No 623, p 13). After a review of the “statutory mandates, regulatory language and public comments”, the EPA concludes that in the absence of statutory change, there are no opportunities for further efficiencies.
