EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AK14 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Restructuring of Pesticide Adverse Effects Reporting Regulations 

The EPA is developing a rulemaking to restructure the existing pesticide incident reporting regulations at 40 CFR part 159, subpart D. The existing regulations specify the requirements for the registrant of a pesticide product to report to the EPA adverse effects of the pesticide as they become aware of such information. In addition to restructuring the existing regulation, this rulemaking will remove a few obsolete references. This rulemaking is intended to be a non-substantive, procedural rulemaking since the EPA does not intend on making any substantive changes to the existing requirements. As such, the EPA is considering issuing this as a final rule. EPA may consider substantive changes for future rulemaking.
