The law requires the Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) to continuously evaluate pesticides currently registered in California. DPR completes this mandate through its Reevaluation Program. Upon receipt of information indicating that use of a pesticide may have caused or is likely to cause an adverse effect to people or the environment, DPR is required to investigate. If based on that investigation, DPR finds that the pesticide has caused or may have caused a significant adverse effect, reevaluation is triggered. When a pesticide enters reevaluation, DPR reviews existing data and may require registrants to provide more data. The goal is to determine the extent of the potential hazard and to identify ways to reduce or eliminate problems.
