Pesticide News Story: Revisions to Web Page Describing When Cleaning Products Are Pesticides under FIFRA

For Release: January 11, 2011

EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs has made several changes to its Web fact sheet concerning pesticidal claims on unregistered cleaning products (“Determining if a Cleaning Product is a Pesticide under FIFRA”). These changes include:

This guidance applies to claims made on a cleaning product’s label or labeling, or through other means such as websites, advertising, promotional or sales activities, and testimonials. Unregistered cleaning products are not permitted to make pesticidal claims. If they do, they must be registered under FIFRA. The EPA Web fact sheet is located at http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/factsheets/pest-habitat-claims.html.
