Labeling Requirements for Pesticide Exports Clarified
The EPA has revised the U.S. regulations relating to the labeling of pesticide products and devices that are intended solely for export. These items will be able to meet the agency’s export labeling requirements by attaching a label to the immediate product container or by providing collateral labeling that is either attached to the immediate product being exported or that accompanies the shipping container of the product being exported at all times when it is shipped or held for shipment in the United States. Collateral labeling will ensure the availability of the required labeling information while allowing pesticide products and devices that are intended solely for export to be labeled for use in, and consistent with the applicable requirements of the importing country. This final rule will enter into force on Feb. 17, 2015.
