Coalition With Over 60 Nonprofit Groups File Citizen Petition with EPA

The Pollinator Stewardship Council joins dozens of concerned nonprofits demanding that the EPA revoke a waiver allowing pesticides to be approved for market without requiring that pesticide companies provide data showing product benefits. For nearly 40 years, the standard is based on the 1984 EPA declaration stating "rather than requiring efficacy data, the Agency presumes the benefits exceed risks." The Petition asks EPA to amend its existing regulation for registrations of all neonicotinoid insecticides and other systemic insecticides so as to require all registration and re-registration applicants to provide performance (efficacy) data to ensure that the benefits of their products actually exceed their costs, including to society and to the environment.
