Campbell, Founding Member of B&C. Their presentation will be followed by a Q&A with webinar participants.

Spray drift and volatilization issues have been the subject of much discussion and are increasingly significant issues in product risk assessments. Earlier this year, EPA issued drafts of key guidance documents that reflect current and still developing EPA policy on spray drift and volatilization issues. How potential for spray drift and for volatilization are identified and then managed are likely to be key elements of ongoing and future risk assessments underlying forthcoming EPA registration and reregistration, with significant potential impact on these decisions. Registrants should monitor closely the policies, EPA decisions implementing them, and their potential impact on their products, particularly given the public interest in these issues. B&C recently issued a memorandum on the subject, available online.
