The Office of Pesticide Programs evaluates scientific data submitted by pesticide registrants in support of pesticide registration to assess potential human health and environmental effects. These studies are conducted with active ingredients, inert ingredients, and product formulations in accordance with EPA guidelines, and generally fall under the subject areas of toxicology, environmental fate and groundwater, ecological effects, residue chemistry, product chemistry, and efficacy. These evaluations are called science reviews or data evaluation records (DERs).
New pesticide indices, with their science review documents, are being added regularly to the FOIA Reading Room.
