This Position Document 1 (PD 1) is the official announcement that EPA is initiating a special review of all pestcide products containing the active ingredient Captafol. EPA has determined that Captafol, which is a fungicide used to control the foliar diseases of certain fruits and vegetables, is oncogenic in rats and mice and highly toxic to fish; and meets or exceeds the risk criteria as described in 40 CFR 162.11, the regulations governing the Special Review (RPAR) process. Only after carefully considering the risks and benefits of Captafol and determining that the pesticide will cause unreasonable adverse effects on man or on the environment, will EPA issue a notice of intent to cancel.
