Revised Web Page Describing When Cleaning Products are Pesticides under FIFRA
Posted: July 31, 2010
The revised guidance provides examples of claims that, under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), the Agency considers:
- to be pesticidal,
- to not be pesticidal,
- may or may not be pesticidal depending on the context of the claim.
This guidance applies to claims made on a cleaning product's label or labeling, or through other means such as Web sites, 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. Determining if a Cleaning Product is a Pesticide under FIFRA can be found on the EPA website.
