Mitigating Exposure

Back to Pesticides and Human Health Information

Mitigation Resources

DPR’s human health mitigation activities are initiated when a Risk Characterization Document (RCD) is completed and a Risk Management Directive (RMD) is prepared that informs the department of exposure scenarios that require mitigation measures-control measures that reduce pesticide exposure-in order to protect human health. The following table contains active ingredients that have been mitigated or have mitigation measures under consideration and/or development.

If you would like to receive information and updates on proposed and final mitigation efforts as well as other activities related to control measures, subscribe to our electronic “Human Health Mitigation” mailing list.
