FIFRA Scientific Advisory Panel Re-Scheduled

The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) has been rescheduled and will meet December 13-16, 2016, to consider and review a set of scientific issues being evaluated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding EPA’s evaluation of the carcinogenic potential of the herbicide glyphosate. This is the meeting that was originally scheduled for October 18-21, 2016.

EPA has published meeting materials in docket EPA-HQ-OPP-2016-0385 at www.regulations.gov, including a glyphosate issue paper with the Agency’s proposed classification that glyphosate is not likely to be carcinogenic to humans at doses relevant for human health risk assessment. The meeting materials, charge, panel members, and panel biosketches for this SAP meeting are also posted on the SAP website.

CLA will provide oral and written comments to the docket for this FIFRA SAP. Should you have questions about this Panel meeting, please contact Janet Collins.
