EPA is accepting public comments on nominations for membership on the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act Scientific Advisory Panel (FIFRA SAP).
The agency anticipates selecting new members to serve on the panel to replace members whose terms will soon expire. Current members of the FIFRA SAP are also eligible for reappointment during this period. Therefore, the appointments completed over the next year may include a mix of newly appointed and reappointed members.
Public comments on the nominees should be submitted to docket EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0293 on www.regulations.gov on or before June 21, 2021. These comments will be used to assist the agency in selecting the new members for the chartered panel. For additional information, please see the Federal Register notice, docket EPA-HQ-OPP-2021-0293, or contact Steven Knott, M.S., DFO, Office of Program Support, Environmental Protection Agency (202-564-0103 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
The FIFRA SAP serves as a primary scientific peer review mechanism of EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention and is structured to provide independent scientific advice and recommendations to EPA on health and safety issues related to pesticides.
