Proposed Rules On Disclosure Of Inert Pesticide Ingredients

In response to two petitions under the Administrative Procedures Act seeking disclosure of selected inert ingredients on pesticide labels, EPA is initiating rulemaking to increase public availability of the identities of the inert ingredients in pesticide products.

The proposed rulemaking would be intended to assist consumers and users of pesticides in making informed decisions and reduce the presence of potentially hazardous ingredients in pesticides. In an advance notice of proposed rulemaking issued on December 23, 2009, EPA sought public comment on a variety of approaches under consideration, including disclosure based on hazard and broader disclosure of inert ingredient identities.
