US EPA debuts web-distributed labelling
The US EPA has launched a voluntary process by which registrants can opt to make legally valid pesticide labelling accessible online for the first time. The web-distributed labelling system is initially aimed at agricultural and industrial pesticides and professional applicators. It will allow applicators to download streamlined labelling, including instructions specific to the state and use site where an application is made, the Agency points out. The system enables faster access to new pesticide uses and regulatory measures to protect public health and the environment, and lower costs to industry and the EPA.
