Pesticide News Story: New EPA Manual on Pesticide Registration Process
For Release: March 16, 2010
The Pesticide Registration Manual is available on EPA's Web site at http://www.epa.gov/opprd001/registrationmanual/. The Manual is an update of "General Information on Applying for Registration of Pesticides in the United States," which was commonly called the "Blue Book." It provides basic information on how to apply for a pesticide registration and describes what needs to be submitted for the most common types of pesticide registration applications in one location. Links are provided where additional information is available on a topic.
The Manual will continue to be revised as needed. Each chapter contains the date of its most recent revision. If readers have suggestions for improvements or enhancements or correction, an e-mail box is provided for comments.
