The Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) of 1996 mandated a more coordinated approach for managing minor crop pesticides. One of the first steps taken by EPA to help improve its responsiveness to minor use concerns was the establishment of a full-time minor crop advisor reporting directly to the Director of the Office of Pesticide Programs. Through this mechanism, growers and others who are impacted by minor use issues are able to raise concerns and consult with senior program officials in a timely and coordinated fashion regarding minor use registrations, reregistrations and policy issues. To address public health minor use issues, EPA also designated a public health coordinator. EPA also created a minor use team to focus coordination of minor crop issues and a public health steering committee for vector pest control issues. These teams include representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and from various programs involved with pesticide issues throughout EPA.
