The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIRFA) as amended by the Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 (FQPA) requires the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop procedures and guidelines for expedited review of any pesticide. EPA has already established a Reduced Risk Initiative for conventional pesticides, has formed the Biopesticides and Pollution Prevention Division to review biological pesticides and has established the Antimicrobial Division to review antimicrobial pesticdes. The purpose of this PR Notice is to provide the process and criteria to guide applicants in developing their submissions to these programs. It defines the types of pesticide products reviewed by the Biopesticides and Pollution Prevention Division and describes how an applicant can apply for biochemical pesticide classification.
