EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AJ20 Publication ID: Spring 2015 
Title: Pesticides; Certification of Pesticide Applicators 

EPA is developing a proposed rule to revise the Federal regulations governing the certified pesticide applicator program, based on years of extensive stakeholder engagement and public meetings, to ensure that they adequately protect applicators, the public, and the environment from potential harm due to exposure to restricted use pesticides (RUPs). This action is intended to improve the training and awareness of certified applicators of RUPs and to increase protection for noncertified applicators of RUPs operating under the direct supervision of a certified applicator through enhanced pesticide safety training and standards for supervision of noncertified applicators.
