ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); extension of comment period.

II. Background

The purpose of the Exposure Modeling Public Meetings is to share new information among stakeholders through presentations on current issues in modeling pesticide fate, transport, and exposure in support of pesticide exposure assessment in a regulatory context. The meetings began in 2002, with typically 5 to 10 presentations made at each meeting on topics such as assessing risks to non-target terrestrial invertebrates, drinking water well contamination, plans for national monitoring of streams and ground water, and examination of non-agricultural pesticide use by means of GIS coverages. Meeting dates and abstract requests are announced in advance through the “empmlist” forum on the LYRIS list server at well as through notice in theFederal Register. At the October 2009 meeting, EPA proposed to modify the frequency of the meetings from three to two meetings per year, to ensure a full agenda and the most productive use of the meeting time. Because of the timing of the January 2010 meeting and proposed presentations, EPA is cancelling that meeting and will hold the next EMPM in July 2010. The specific date of the next meeting will be announced in a February 2010 issue of theFederal Register.
