SUBJECT: UPDATES TO VOLUME 3, RESTRICTED MATERIALS AND PERMITTING,
PESTICIDE USE ENFORCEMENT PROGRAM STANDARDS
This letter announces the availability of, and summarizes updates to, Volume 3, Restricted Materials and Permitting, of the Pesticide Use Enforcement Program Standards Compendium. Updates are enclosed and also available online at the link provided below. Please have your staff begin using these updates as soon as possible. Hard copies of the updates will not be distributed.
Changes caused by the volatile organic compound (VOC) requirements necessitated a major reorganization to Appendix C. In order to minimize future changes to the page numbering, those sections least likely to have major changes have been moved to the front of this section, while
sections most likely to have changes have been moved to the back. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
Page C-137—added Suggested Table for Time Restrictions: Real-time Monitoring;
Page C-138—section B renamed Air Monitoring Equipment. This section adds realtime remote sensor monitors by PureAire Monitoring Systems, in addition to the use of colorimetric detector tubes. Although currently placed in the soil fumigation section, these air monitoring methods apply to enclosed areas, including commodity fumigations. This will be addressed in a future update;
If you have any questions, please contact the Enforcement Branch Liaison.
