EPA will hold a public meeting to present to interested stakeholders the Agency's risk assessments for four soil fumigant pesticides: dazomet, metam sodium, methyl bromide, and 1,3-D or Telone. This public meeting, known as a ``Technical Briefing,'' will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to learn more about the data, information, and methodologies that the Agency used in developing its risk assessments for these pesticides. EPA is concurrently assessing six soil fumigants, including these four pesticides, to ensure that its risk assessment approaches are consistent, and to ensure that risk tradeoffs and economic outcomes can be adequately predicted in reaching risk management decisions. Risk assessments for two other soil fumigants, chloropicrin and a new active ingredient, iodomethane, will follow about a month later due to recently submitted data which are currently under review.
