U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Key Developments

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Reaches Agreement with Air Techniques, Inc. to Settle Violations of Federal Law Governing Pesticides

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has reached an agreement with Air Techniques, Inc. to settle violations of federal law governing pesticides. The company, which sell wholesale cleaners and a surface disinfectant that are used to clean instruments, equipment and surfaces in dental offices and medical facilities, sold unregistered pesticides and imported pesticides into the U.S. without proper notification. The company will pay a $375,000 penalty and come into compliance with federal pesticide law. Some pesticides have been linked to illnesses in people, ranging from skin and eye irritation to cancer. and may also affect the hormone or endocrine systems. In many situations, there are non-chemical methods that will effectively control pests. Companies that sell pesticides without making sure these products are properly registered and labeled put people's health and safety at risk. Under federal pesticide law, products that contain an unregistered pesticide as an active ingredient or claim to kill or repel bacteria or germs are considered pesticides and must be registered with the EPA prior to distribution or sale. The agency will not register a pesticide until it has been tested to show that it will not pose an unreasonable risk when used according to the label directions. During a May 15, 2013 inspection of Air Techniques, Melville, New York, warehouse, the EPA discovered the following violations of federal pesticides law: Two pesticides that Air Techniques sold from its warehouse, the Monarch Enzymatic Cleaner, and the Monarch Waterline Cleaner, were never registered with the EPA.

Uranium Energy Secures Reaffirmation from US Environmental Protection Agency on Aquifer Exemption for Goliad Project

Uranium Energy (UEC) said the US Environmental Protection Agency reaffirmed its earlier decision to uphold the granting of the company's existing Aquifer Exemption, or AE, for its fully permitted Goliad ISR Project. The EPA decision supports the current plan of operations at the Goliad Project, the company said, noting EPA stated the AE for the northwestern portion of the project-which contains less than 10% of the uranium resource-is temporarily being withdrawn, but not excluded from the AE, until additional information is provided for that segment of the project area in the planned and normal course of mine development.
