EPA Extends Comment Period for Draft Risk Evaluation for PV29

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has extended the comment period for the revised draft risk evaluation for C.I. Pigment Violet 29 (PV29).  85 Fed. Reg. 74718.  As reported in our October 29, 2020, blog item, EPA states that after it issued a draft risk evaluation in November 2018, it received additional data on PV29 in response to test orders, as well as additional information voluntarily submitted by the sole U.S. manufacturer.  EPA’s updated analysis, reflected in the revised draft risk evaluation, now shows unreasonable risk to workers for 11 out of 14 conditions of use.  Comments are due December 19, 2020.

EPA will use feedback from the public comment period to inform the final risk evaluation.  EPA notes that the revised draft risk evaluation is not a final agency action and represents its current review of the scientific information on PV29.  As with any chemical product, EPA “strongly recommends that users carefully follow all instructions on the product’s label/safety data sheet.”
