Europe’s Neonic Restrictions Contrast with EPA’s Solution

The ACTA Group

James V. Aidala was quoted in the May 3, 2013, issue of Pesticide and Chemical Policy on the effect on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of a recent decision by the European Commission to restrict use of three neonicotinoids: “‘The pressure on EPA will increase as a result of the European restrictions,’ says James Aidala, senior government consultant with Bergeson & Campbell, and former assistant administrator for EPA’s office of prevention, pesticides, and toxic substances. ‘Is there a need for further mitigation? And if there is, how do you implement it? now becomes the issue,’ he adds.”
