In an advance notice of proposed rulemaking issued in 2009, EPA sought public comment on a variety of approaches under consideration, including disclosure based on hazard and broader disclosure of inert ingredient identities.

EPA initiated this rulemaking in response to two petitions filed under the Administrative Procedures Act seeking disclosure of selected inert ingredients on pesticide labels (based on the hazard of that ingredient). The petitioners asserted that such a rulemaking would assist consumers and users of pesticides in making informed decisions and reduce the presence of potentially hazardous ingredients in pesticides.

This site provides summaries of priority rulemakings and priority retrospective reviews of existing regulations. We update most of the site at the beginning of each month, though some data is updated more frequently if it is time sensitive. The information on this site is not intended to and does not commit EPA to specific conclusions or actions. For example, after further analysis, EPA may decide the effects of a rule would be different or it may decide to terminate a rulemaking.
