Merry Christmas from EPA: Comment Period Extended for NMP Draft Risk Evaluation
This past Wednesday, December 18, EPA gave stakeholders an early Christmas gift when the agency announced that it is extending the public comment period for the draft risk evaluation for N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP). This additional time accounts for the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s holidays, which could have made it difficult for many stakeholders to provide meaningful, substantive comments on the draft NMP risk evaluation. All comments must now be filed with EPA by Tuesday, January 21.
EPA’s draft risk evaluation preliminarily found that numerous industrial, commercial, and consumer uses of NMP present unreasonable risks.
