EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AK37 Publication ID: Spring 2018 
Title: Pesticides; Certification of Pesticide Applicators Rule; Reconsideration of the Minimum Age Requirements 

EPA promulgated a final rule to amend the Certification of Pesticide Applicators regulations at 40 CFR 171 on January 4, 2017 (82 FR 952). On June 2, 2017, EPA delayed the effective date of this final rule (82 FR 25529) and initiated reconsideration proceedings in accordance with the Presidential directives as expressed in the memorandum of January 20, 2017, from the Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff, entitled "Regulatory Freeze Pending Review," and the principles identified in Executive Order 13790, entitled "Promoting Agriculture and Rural Prosperity in America." In addition, EPA solicited comments in the spring of 2017 on regulations that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement or modification as part of the Regulatory Reform Agenda efforts. EPA received comments specific to the certification rule. Based on comments raised through solicited comments, EPA has decided to reconsider one requirement of the final rule, and plans to issue a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for this by the end of FY 2018.
