Labeling Flexibility for Pesticide Products for Export Delayed

Monday, July 14, 2014
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Due to the receipt of adverse comments, the Environmental Protection Agency has withdrawn a direct final rule that would have allowed labeling information required for pesticide products and devices intended solely for export to be placed on collateral labeling that accompanies the shipping container of such products. Collateral labeling includes bulletins, leaflets, circulars, brochures, data sheets, flyers or other written, printed or graphic matter that is referred to on the label or is to accompany the product. Currently, such labeling must appear on the immediate package of each individual product in such a shipment.

The EPA has now issued a proposed rule that would make the same change and is inviting comments no later than Aug. 11.
