The report provides a qualitative categorization assessment for three sets of Pesticide Active Ingredients (PAIS): (1) The 270 PAIS initially considered for regulation; (2) A List of PAIS reported as manufactured in the 1986 Pesticide Manufacturing Census and subsequent follow-up data; and (3) A list of 120 PAIS that are being regulated under effluent guidelines. The categorization assessment uses readily-available physical-ion persistence, and aquatic toxicity of the PAIS, thus giving an indication of the potential environmental impacts due to PAIS released to the environment.
