EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AJ22 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Pesticides; Agricultural Worker Protection Standard Revisions 
Abstract: EPA is developing a proposal under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act to revise the Federal regulations that direct agricultural worker protection (40 CFR 170). The changes under consideration are intended to improve agricultural workers' ability to protect themselves from potential exposure to pesticides and pesticide residues. In addition, EPA is proposing to make adjustments to improve and clarify current requirements and facilitate enforcement. Other changes sought are to bring hazard communication requirements more in line with Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements and make improvements to pesticide safety training, with improved worker safety the intended outcome. The potential need for change arose from EPA discussions with key stakeholders beginning in 1996 and continuing through 2004. EPA held nine public meetings throughout the country during which the public submitted written and verbal comments on issues of their concern. In 2000 through 2004, EPA held meetings where invited stakeholders identified their issues and concerns with the regulations.
