Crosswalk Table for Non-public-Health Guidelines

Resources

This table provides a crosswalk between the 91b Series non-public-health test guidelines and the new 810 Series test guidelines. In certain instances, the methods used to support public health related label claims may also be used to support non-public-health label claims, with some exceptions (e.g., microorganisms related to odor or for animal pathogens). This crosswalk is intended to assist interested parties in determining which 810 guidelines may be appropriate for generating data to support non-public-health claims. In addition, other testing approaches also may be acceptable to support non-public-health label claims.

Registrants and applicants should also note that the agency has waived all requirements to submit efficacy data unless the pesticide product bears a claim to control pest microorganisms that pose a threat to human health and whose presence cannot readily be observed by the user including, but not limited to, microorganisms infectious to man in any area of the inanimate environment. However, each registrant must ensure through testing that his products are efficacious when used in accordance with label directions and commonly accepted pest control practices. The agency reserves the right to require, on a case-by-case basis, submission of efficacy data for any pesticide product registered or proposed for registration. [see 40 CFR Part 161.640, footnote (1)]
