EPA has put up a web site about the Agency’s Pesticide Advisory Committees. This EPA site explains that
“Advisory committees provide advice to EPA on pesticide regulatory, technical, and policy issues. Meetings are organized under the Federal Advisory Committee Act:
Meetings are open to the public.
Anyone can submit comments before or after meetings.
Anyone can make statements during meetings.”
EPA’s current pesticide advisory committees are
“Pesticide Program Dialogue Committee (PPDC) meets regularly with EPA to discuss pesticide regulatory, policy, and program implementation issues.
FIFRA Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP), composed of independent scientists, advises on many of the more technically challenging scientific assessment issues faced by the pesticide program.
Human Studies Review Board (HSRB) provides independent advice on issues relating to the scientific and ethical review of research involving human subjects. Read about how the pesticide program works to ensure protection of human subjects.”
