The report reviews the legislative and legal status of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act of 1947; recommends procedures for determining the order in which pesticides are to be considered for further analyses; scrutinizes the methods by which risks to public health and the environment and economic benefits are assessed by OPP, with special emphasis on the assessment of carcinogenic risk and the benefits of agricultural pesticide use, and examines the effects of alternative regulations on the risk-benefit assessment. It also considers the generation of alternative regulatory options and the comparison of the effects of the alternative options studied as a function of the administrative decision-making process and tests the feasibility of the proposed recommendations during a review of the pesticide chlorobenzilate by the authoring committee.
