The Reregistration Eligibility Decision document (RED) addresses the eligibility for reregistration of pesticide products containing boric acid and its sodium salts; specifically it includes products containing boric acid, sodium tetraborate decahydrate (borax decahydrate), sodium tetraborate pentahydrate (borax pentahydrate), sodium tetraborate (anhydrous borax), disodium octaborate tetrahydrate, disodium octaborate (anhydrous), and sodium metaborate. The RED includes the reregistration case sodium metaborate which was initially grouped in a different registration standard but it is included here because this chemical is a sodium salt of boric acid. Originally, the RED was to have included boric oxide as an active ingredient. However, since there currently are no registered products with this active, boric oxide will not be included in the document.
