The Agency is interested in optimizing the usefulness of the Label Review Manual (LRM) as a tool for understanding the pesticide labeling process. The LRM is also useful in understanding approaches for how labels should generally be drafted. As always, the Agency will consider each label on its own merits and will consider deviations from Agency policy in labeling under the appropriate provisions of FIFRA and its implementing regulations.

EPA considers this document to be an instructional aid that does not establish new guidance, but instead compiles extant interpretations of statutory and regulatory provisions and reiterates existing Agency policies.

Errors or suggestions for the LRM can be submitted to the Agency at our Pesticide Labeling Consistency Web site, Pesticide Labeling Questions and Answers page.
