Abstract/Contents:"The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as authorized in the 1988 amendments to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), is proposing regulations on the storage of pesticides. These regulations are scheduled to become final in late 1991, with compliance effective two years later. The goal of the storage regulations is to provide minimum, reasonable federal storage standards. The overall objectives of the storage regulations are to minimize human exposure, improve fire protection, ensure safe and effective spill management and cleanup, and codify good management practices. These proposed regulations contain minimum standards for all facilities that store more than 11,000 pounds (5,000 kilograms) of pesticide products. Industry surveys of facilities and practices reveal that many agrichemical dealers and distributors meet or exceed the standards in the proposed regulations. The intent is simply to achieve compliance by the segment of the industry that does not currently meet these minimum standards. The proposed regulations also require specific operational procedures for all storage facilities. These procedures include accident prevention, inspection of containers, and employee training."
