On March 11, 2019, Bloomberg Environment featured comments by James V. Aidala, Senior Government Affairs Consultant with Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®), regarding a plan for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to cut two months off the time it takes to review pesticide registrations.
One chemical-industry consultant says the EPA’s ability to shave 60 days from its reviews depends on the kind of registration.
“You’re not going to cut two months from a product with a four- or a six-month review time,” said James V. Aidala, a government affairs consultant with the law firm of Bergeson & Campbell PC in Washington.
“They are probably going to be looking to cut a little bit of time from product categories with a much longer reviews,” Aidala told Bloomberg Environment.
