THE RESIDENTIAL EXPOSURE Joint Venture (REJV), one of CSPA's Product Ingredient Review (PIR "Parent in room." See digispeak. ) groups, submitted the first four months of data from a national survey on product-specific pesticide use and related information to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), independent agency of the U.S. government, with headquarters in Washington, D.C. It was established in 1970 to reduce and control air and water pollution, noise pollution, and radiation and to ensure the safe handling and on March 3. The group, chaired by Stuart MacArthur, S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc., expects to submit the full 12-month data set this summer.
The goals of this project are to obtain information about pesticide product use in and around residential sites, as well as gather information regarding pesticide product use in a form that permits "mapping" use over time. Further, the project aims to provide information necessary for a quantitative exposure assessment over a one-year period using a static sample of households.
