Regulatory Update: EPA releases pesticide storage and labeling guide

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Pesticide Programs' Labeling Consistency Committee has completed revisions and updates to Chapter 13 of its pesticide label review manual. The pesticide label review manual provides guidance to both EPA reviewers and the pesticide chemical industry on what is required and recommended for each part of a pesticide product label in order for the agency to approve the label. Chapter 13, dealing with storage and disposal statements on labels, has been updated to clearly reflect the requirements of the 2006 "container-containment" rule, which specified improvements to storage and disposal practices. Prior to revising the chapter, the committee collected comments from the public — primarily the pesticide industry — and state regulators. The revised Chapter 13 is posted on the EPA website at www.epa.gov/oppfead1/labeling/lrm/chap-13.pdf. more
