Comments on Proposed Rules for Methyl Bromide Official Quarantine Uses

December 07, 2009

NRDC comments on rules proposed by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture for determining "official quarantine uses" of methyl bromide under Section 419 of the Plant Protection Act. NRDC submits that the proposed rules do not comply with Section 419 and conflict with requirements of the Montreal Protocol and the Clean Air Act.
