CHARTER OF THE WORKING GROUP OF THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON PESTICIDES

THE CABINET COMMITTEE ON THE ENVIRONMENT

A. ESTABLISHMENT

A Working Group of the Subcommittee on Pesticides of the Cabinet Committee on the Environment (formerly Environmental Quality Council) is established pursuant to action of the Committee (Council) announced on November 20, and the Federal Committee on Pest Control is hereby abolished.

The Working Group will: (1) provide day-to-day coordination of Federal agency pesticide activities; and (2) develop program and policy proposals for consideration by the Subcommittee on Pesticides. The following agencies will have membership on the Working Group:

Department of Agriculture.
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.
Department of the Interior.
Department of Defense.
Department of Transportation.

Department of State.* The Office of Science and Technology, the Bureau of the Budget, and the Office of Intergovernmental Relations will be invited to designate an observer at the meetings of the Working Group. Other agencies will be invited to participate in meetings when matters of significant concern to them are to be discussed.

The Working Group will consist of one principal authorized to commit his agency in routine coordination and on most issues and to make reservations on behalf of his agency on controversial issues. At the request of any principal, Departmental or agency issues will be refered to the Subcommittee on Pesticides for review prior to implementation.

Each member agency will name one or more alternates to speak for that agency in the absence of the principal. Other individuals, cognizant of the pesticide programs and responsibilities of their agencies, may attend meetings to provide technical support for the principal.

It is recognized that the use of pesticide chemicals is necessary to protect man. animals, plants, and the environment against harmful insects, rodents, other vertebrate pests, weeds, and diseases. It is further recognized that use of pesticide chemicals, especially careless and unauthorized use, is hazardous to nontarget man, plants, and animals, and the environment. It is, therefore, essential that any use of a pesticide chemical be evaluated as to the necessity for its use, the harm which may result, and the precautions which must be taken to minimize harmful effects.

*The intent is to assure adequate consideration of international concerns which are largely but not wholly represented within the Agency for International Development.

B. PURPOSE

The Working Group is the primary staff level coordinating mechanism for Federal activities concerning pesticides, pests, and their control. The activities coordinated by the Working Group include, but are not limited to:

(1) Pest control programs in various parts of the world in which there is active participation on the part of the Federal government, either in funding or in supervision;

(2) Research on pests and their control and effects of control procedures, whether by chemical or other methods;

(3) Monitoring of the environment for pesticides and their residues ;

(4) Establishment of pesticide investigation teams to conduct special investigations of pesticide problems which arise or which may be anticipated ;

(5) Public information on pest control and the use of pesticides ;

(6) Evaluation of economic and social values and risks involved in the control of pests by various methods; and

(7) Advice to the interdepartmental group on pesticide registration on problems that it believes should be considered by that group.

The Working Group shall advise the Subcommittee on Pesticides and the appropriate Federal departments and agencies concerning matters of common interest. In no case, however, will the Working Group supersede the responsibility of each department and agency to carry out the functions assigned to it by legislative and executive mandates. The Working Group will encourage eschange of information among international, Federal, state, and local agencies and may participate with them as appropriate.

C. PROCEDURES 1. Review of programs

(a) On request, any Federal agency shall submit to the Working Group for review a detailed description of its proposed and current pest control programs and monitoring, research, education, and other programs pertaining to pest control.

(b) The Working Group will riew such programs from the standpoint of effectiveness, economic impact and hazards to human health, to livestock and crops, to fish or wildlife, and to other elements of the environment.

(c) Based on such review, the Working Group shall recommend to the heads of the departments or agencies concerned such modifications in the programs as the Working Group feels will best serve the public interest. 2. Intergovernmental cooperation

(a) The Working Group shall promote or encourage review of both Federal and non-Federal programs by state and local groups representing a broad spectrum of interests and responsibilities.

(b) The Working Group may communicate with such state and local groups to receive their recommendations and to make recommendations to them, either directly or through member departments, whicherer seems most expeditious and effective.

(c) Subject to foreign policy guidance from the Department of State, the Working Group may participate in joint activities with foreign or international groups having similar interests and will coordinate these activites among Federal and state agencies. Informal recommendations arising from such joint activities may be directed by the Working Group to the concerned Federal department or agency. No formal recommendations shall be transmitted directly to any foreign government or international agency. 3. Stimulation of new activities

Whenever the Working Group feels that the public interest will be served by the initiation of new activity, such as interdepartmental participat in integrating a variety of control methods or in analyzing jointly the efforts of such integrated control on all aspects of the environment, the Working Group may recommend appropriate action to the Subcommittee on Pesticides and to the concerned departments or agencies and representatives of states. 4. Mechanisms available to the Working Group

(a) The Working Group may establish ad hoc groups or panels of specialists to assist in discharging the Working Group's responsibilities. Membership on such ad hoc groups need not be limited to representatives of Federal departments, () The Working Group may request the appropriate agencies to proride special services, consultation, staff, facilities, publications, conferences, etc., as may facilitate the work of the Working Group. Expenditure of appropriated funds for such activities of the Working Group must be within the authority and area of responsibility of the contributing department or agency and must remain within its individual fiscal control, even though the technical supervision may be provided by the Working Group.

D. MEMBERSHIP Vembership and observer status on the Working Group is by appointment of principals and alternates by letter, to the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Pesticides, from the heads of agencies concerned.
