Regulatory Affairs

CPDA is fully engaged in pesticide and chemical control policy and regulatory issues, and advocates for equitable, science-based regulations on behalf of its members and the pesticide and chemical industries. We place special emphasis on maintaining regular contact with federal Environmental Protection Agency personnel on a wide range of regulatory topics important to our members, which often involve complex scientific and regulatory issues. Through these relationships, our participation on agency committees and work groups, and our submission of comments on proposed agency actions, CPDA seeks to achieve fair approaches to the regulation of pesticides and other chemicals. These activities may include joint cooperative efforts of CPDA and other interested trade associations and organizations.
