®: CRE Regulatory Action of the Week

CRE, Farmers File Joint Data Quality Act Petition on Atrazine
The Kansas Corn Growers Association and the Triazine Network joined CRE in filing a joint Data Quality Act Petition requesting corrections to influential information in EPA's Final Registration Eligibility Science Chapter for Atrazine: Environmental Fate and Effects Chapter (April 22, 2002). The Petition, filed November 25, 2002, requests correction of those parts of EPA's Environmental Risk Assessment stating that the herbicide atrazine causes endocrine effects in the environment. EPA's statements do not meet the Data Quality Act's reliability, reproducibility and utility standards because there are no validated tests for determining whether atrazine causes environmental endocrine effects.
