The Position Document 1 (PD 1) is the official announcement that EPA is initiating a Special Review of all pesticide products containing the active ingredient Cyanazine. EPA has determined that Cyanazine, registered herbicide, produces teratogenic effects in laboratory rats and that sufficient exposure to mixer/loaders and applicators exists so that Cyanazine meets or exceeds a risk criterion described in 40 CFR 162.11, the regulations governing the Special Review process. These hazards will be examined further to determine the nature and extent of the risk, and considering the benefits of Cyanazine, whether such risks cause unreasonable adverse effects on the environment.
