According to EPA, Pesticide law defines a “pesticide” (with certain minor exceptions) as:

- Any substance or mixture of substances intended for use as a plant regulator, 落叶剂, 或干燥剂
The length of time involved in obtaining a federal registration depends on many factors such as the proposed uses of the product, the formulation of the product 和 how the data requirements will be addressed. Delays can be avoided by submitting quality packages in the initial submission 和 working h和-in-h和 with EPA during the review process. TSG can provide time estimates for the preparation of the pesticide application package as well as an estimate of EPA’s time to review the application package once it is submitted to EPA.
The data requirements that are needed for an EPA pesticide registration are dependent on the proposed product uses including location 和 claims made on the labeling. The formulation of the proposed product can also impact the type of data required. T在这里 are many ways the data requirements can be addressed such as data citation, 放弃理论和实验室生成. 农药的数据要求见40 CFR第158部分. TSG can provide a list of data requirements specific to your proposed product through a registration 策略 assessment document or a data gap analysis.
The costs 和 fees that go into getting a pesticide registered with EPA vary greatly depending on numerous factors. 这些因素包括产品将如何使用(例如, 公共卫生与非公共卫生), 产品的配方(例如, new active ingredient vs existing active ingredient in EPA’s database), 以及如何满足数据需求(例如, 数据引用vs实验室生成). TSG can provide cost estimates specific to the proposed product upon request.
Pesticide registrations with the EPA must be maintained throughout their life cycle through various obligations. EPA要求每个产品每年支付维护费用. 此外, EPA是否发布了适用于你们产品的数据调用, 数据调用必须由产品注册人处理. 偶尔, EPA issues other labeling 和 data m和ates outside of the data call-in which must also be addressed. 最后, 如果注册人拥有epa注册的设施, annual reports are required to maintain the establishment registration. TSG can assist 公司 with the above-mentioned tasks as well as other EPA obligations.
