IMPROVED PESTICIDE REGISTRATION IMPROVEMENT ACT
December 31, 2013
PRIA Tracking Email Notification Software to Deploy TODAY
EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) has developed and will deploy TODAY, December 31, 2013, software enhancements for the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act (PRIA)’s requirement for Registration Tracking Milestone email messages.
The enhancements will be available to the industry beginning January 1, 2014 and will inform registrant contacts when any of their PRIA submissions reach each of the seven defined tracking milestones.
Before manufacturers can sell pesticides in the United States, EPA must evaluate the pesticides thoroughly to ensure that they meet federal safety standards to protect human health and the environment. The EPA grants a “registration” or license that permits a pesticide’s distribution, sale, and use only after the company meets the scientific and regulatory requirements.
Applications for a new or amended pesticide registration must include the appropriate EPA forms.
