    EPA's Human Studies Review Board Meets on Pesticide Study
    EPA 's Human Studies Review Board will hold a public meeting on January 17, 2013, from approximately 1:00 p.m. to approximately 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Comments may be submitted on or before noon (Eastern Time) on Thursday, January 10, 2013. At this meeting, the HSRB will consider scientific and ethical issues surrounding a completed study report from the Antimicrobial Exposure Assessment Task Force II in which the dermal and inhalation exposure of professional janitorial workers was monitored as they poured liquid antimicrobial pesticide products from conventional or reduced splash containers into different sizes and types of source containers. EPA seeks the advice of the HSRB on the scientific soundness of this completed research and on its appropriateness for use in estimating exposure that results from pouring liquid antimicrobial pesticide products. EPA also seeks the advice of the HSRB on whether available information supports a determination that the study was conducted in substantial compliance with subparts K and L of 40 CFR Part 26.
