Under existing law, the Director of Pesticide Regulation, upon completion of an evaluation of a pesticide, is required to prepare a report on the health effects of any pesticide determined to be a toxic air contaminant which poses a present or potential hazard to human health due to airborne emission from its use, as specified. This report is required to be made available to the public, as specified. The director is also required to determine, in consultation with specified entities, the need for and appropriate degree of control measures for each pesticide listed as a toxic air contaminant.

This bill would require that the written determination regarding control measures for each pesticide and all findings made by consulting agencies be made available to the public.

Existing law provides that, for those pesticides for which a need for control measures has been determined, the director, in consultation with specified entities, is required to develop control measures designed to reduce emissions sufficiently so that the source will not expose the public to the levels of exposure which may cause or contribute to significant adverse health effects. Existing law provides that, after a public hearing, the director shall adopt, by regulation, control measures, including application of the best practicable control techniques for those pesticides for which a need has been determined.

This bill would include pesticides identified by the director as toxic air contaminants within the list of pesticides for which the director is required to develop control measures, as specified above. The bill would specify that the director shall develop the control measures for each pesticide listed as a toxic air contaminant.

This bill would further provide that the director shall follow specified consultation procedures and would require the director, within 2 years of the determination of the need for control measures or following a risk assessment of a pesticide identified as a toxic air contaminant, to adopt control measures to protect human health or report to the Legislature why control measures have not been adopted. The bill would provide, with respect to any pesticide for which a determination of the need for control measures was made prior to January 1, 2013, that the 2-year period described above commences on January 1, 2013.
