Risk Assessment Documents

Risk Characterization Documents (RCDs) estimate the nature and likelihood of adverse health effects in humans who may be exposed to pesticides.

NOTE: DPR is not conducting a human health risk assessment on glyphosate at this time. Until additional data become available, DPR will rely on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (U.S. EPA's) assessment of the potential health risks from glyphosate exposure to determine if additional mitigation measures are necessary.
