The EPA has identified 40 chemicals for a two-stage reassessment programme. These include herbicides, fungicides, industrial chemicals, fire retardants, toxins including brodifacoum and Bormadiolone, organophgsophates, and many others. These are used in industry, agriculture, horticulture and gardening. Some of these have very high scores for human and/or environmental health risks. Some bioaccumulate.
Environment and Conservation Organizations of Aotearoa New Zealand (ECO) would very much value information on these for the sake of any submissions they may make. No deadline is given for these reassessments and the list may alter as the EPA examines them. Technical expertise is needed for these reassessments and ECO would appreciate help with them.
