Pesticide News Story: EPA Seeking Comments on Product Performance Test Guidelines for Public Health Uses of Antimicrobial Pesticide Products
For Release: January 28, 2010
EPA has issued a Federal Register Notice of Availability seeking public comment on four proposed efficacy test guidelines for public health-related antimicrobial pesticide products. These guidelines address efficacy testing for antimicrobial agents intended to be used on hard, inanimate, environmental surfaces, and that bear label claims as sterilants, disinfectants, and sanitizers. Data from these studies are used to support the labeling claims for public health-related antimicrobial agents. By issuing this notice, EPA will be opening a 60-day public comment period on these draft guidelines.
The draft guidelines will be filed in Docket ID # EPA-HQ-OPP-2009-0681. The Federal Register Notice of Availability is available on the Web site.
