EPA, Consider Industry When Updating Science Policy

EPA Scientific Integrity Policy Update: Balancing Regulatory Decisions with Industry Input

The EPA is currently updating its scientific integrity policy, and industry groups are urging the agency to take their perspectives into account. These guidelines are essential as they will help protect the agency’s research and shield its scientists from political interference. Grifo, the EPA’s scientific integrity official, has stated that she was not surprised by the influx of comments from various sectors regarding the policy update. She emphasized that hearing from all sides is crucial when making decisions as a regulatory agency since these decisions have far-reaching consequences for the regulated community. The finalization of these guidelines is expected later this year, and the agency’s commitment to carefully considering input from industry groups and other stakeholders highlights their dedication to upholding scientific integrity.
