CRE has filed a Data Quality Alert as a precursor to filing a Data Quality Act petition. A Data Quality Alert is a mechanism for informing an agency of the deficiencies in a report which provides a basis for filing a Data Quality petition.
CRE has taken this action in response to the following report issued by EPA:
Environmental Protection Agency, “Benefits of Neonicotinoid Seed Treatments to Soybean Production,” (“Soybean Report”) October 15, 2014.
The aforementioned report indicts the entire FIFRA based regulatory process and if left unchallenged will undermine science based regulation of pesticides.
