EPA has assessed the risks of bensulide and reached an Interim Reregistration Eligibility Decision (IRED) for this organophosphate (OP) pesticide. With the risk mitigation measures required, bensulide fits into its own 'risk cup'-its individual, aggregate risks are within acceptable levels. Bensulide also is eligible for reregistration, pending a full reassessment of the cumulative risk from all Ops. EPA is reviewing the OP pesticides to determine whether they meet current health and safety standards. Older OPs need decisions about their eligibility for reregistration under FIFRA. Ops with residues in food, drinking water, and other non-occupational exposures also must be reassessed to make sure they meet the new FQPA safety standards.
