The Pesticide Program Dialogue Committee provides a forum for a diverse group of stake holders to provide advice to EPA’s pesticide program on various pesticide regulatory, policy, and program implementation issues. In meeting its Federal Insecticide, Fungicide,and Rodenticide Act and Endangered Species Act obligations, EPA seek advice from the PPDC and its workgroup, the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act Process Improvement Work Group. EPA plans to meet its ESA consultation obligations through the pesticide registration review program.

EPA seeks input on improving the current process for stake holder input on endangered species’ consultations, such as when and where stake holders should provide information regarding a pesticide during the registration review process. This meeting of the PRIA Process Improvement Work Group continues the dialogue between EPA and interested stake holders on improving opportunities for stake holder involvement on endangered species’ consultations. The meeting agenda will be available on the Web at

Requests to participate in the meeting must be received by EPA on or before July 22, 2011.
