EPA Updates Pesticide Registration Review Deadline

September 28, 2022

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued an update on its progress in meeting the October 1, 2022, Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) pesticide registration review deadline for the 726 pesticide cases registered before October 2007. This includes 140 antimicrobial pesticides, including disinfectants and sanitizers intended for use on inanimate surfaces.

EPA stressed that pesticides without finalized review as of the October 1 deadline, including the close to 30% of the antimicrobial pesticides slated for review, can remain on the market and be used according to the product label.

That said, EPA used the opportunity to affirm its aggressive plan to review all remaining pesticide cases and issue decisions to protect humans, endangered species, and the environment, while providing pesticide users with predictability about the legal status of pesticides in registration review.
