The EPA Inspector General has issued a report criticizing EPA’s regulation of nano pesticide materials.  The IG report is entitled “EPA Needs to Manage Nanomaterial Risks More Effectively.” The IG report found “that EPA does not currently have sufficient information or processes to effectively manage the human health and environmental risks of nanomaterials. EPA has the statutory authority to regulate nanomaterials but currently lacks the environmental and human health exposure and toxicological data to do so effectively.”
