Abstract
These criteria for a pesticide standard apply only to occupations in pesticide manufacturing and formulating. This includes manufacturing, formulating, packaging, mixing, blending, or repackaging of any pesticide active ingredient. Occupational exposure is defined as contact with any pesticide or other chemical during the manufacture and formulation of pesticides. 'Pesticide' is used herein as the generic term meaning any substance or mixture of substances intended for those uses described by definition in the Federal Environmental Pesticide Control Act (FEPCA): preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest and regulating, defoliating, or desiccating any plant (40 CFR 162). All pesticide active ingredients registered with the EPA are covered by this recommended standard.
