Pesticides; Public Availability of Identities of Inert Ingredients in Pesticides

a.k.a. Inert Disclosure

RIN: 2070-AJ62 (What's this?)

Docket No.: EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0635 (What's this?)

Current Phase: Pre-Proposal (What's this?)

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.
