FIFRA US Pesticide Regulation Training Course Overview

The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) is a United States federal law that establishes the system of pesticide regulation to protect applicators, consumers, and the environment.  It is administered and regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and additionally by the appropriate environmental agencies of the respective states. In this course, we will discuss the EPA’s present authority to oversee the sales and use of pesticides with emphasis on the various types of pesticide product categories, registration dossiers, labeling and additional compliance responsibilities while reviewing the components of FIFRA.

This 2 day course addresses what defines a pesticide, types of pesticide registrations and the responsibilities of pesticide Registrants, Manufacturers and Distributors as they go through the process of registering pesticide products and maintaining compliance within the statute as outlined in FIFRA’s implementing regulations of Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR) Parts 150.189.

With a complex regulatory scheme encompassing all products intended to repel any “pest,” FIFRA is often misunderstood. Companies frequently only become aware that FIFRA applies to their products after a violation occurs. We provide Manufacturers and Distributors with understanding of how to comply with this statute. As penalties for FIFRA violations can be substantial, it is our mission to provide attendees with an understanding of FIFRA and its requirements to avoid such penalties.

This course will provide attendees with the necessary tools to recognize and implement company and product compliance, highlighting the most important steps that industry professionals can take to ensure compliance and avoid enforcement action.
