Pesticide Registration (PR) Notice 97-5: Use of Common Names for Active Ingredients on Pesticide Labeling

Resources

Notice To: Manufacturers, Producers, Formulators, and Registrants of Pesticide Products

Attention: Persons Responsible for the Registration of Pesticides

Subject: Use of Common Names for Active Ingredients on Pesticide Labeling

This notice announces EPA policy to expand the use of common names on
pesticide labeling. EPA will permit the use of common names approved by
the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in the label ingredients
statement without the accompanying scientific chemical names, and will
permit the use of other common names listed in this notice without the
accompanying scientific chemical name. EPA also recommends the inclusion
on labels of Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) numbers to identify
ingredients definitively.

A registrant is not required to revise a product label in this manner;
chemical names may be retained in the ingredients statement. EPA urges
registrants of consumer products in particular to modify their labels to
use common names.

Label revisions in response to this notice may be done by
notification.


I. BACKGROUND

Chemicals (including pesticide ingredients) have scientific names
based upon their chemical structure. In many instances, these names are
long, complicated and understandable only by those with a scientific or
technical background. Chemical naming systems have been developed, but a
single chemical structure may have several chemical name variants.
Historically, some chemicals have been identified by shorter, acronym-like
names, often based upon combinations of the chemical name or chemical
family to which the chemical belongs. These are called "common names" and
are widely used in lieu of the chemical names on a day-to-day basis,
particularly in the agricultural pesticide community.

In the past, common names for pesticide active ingredients were
established by the now-defunct Intergovernmental Committee on Pest Control
(e.g., captan), or by the Food and Drug Administration. Others may have
become well-known merely by common usage through the years. Typically,
these were agricultural chemicals whose use predates standardization
processes. Newer common names are generally developed through an
established approval process, such as one of the national standards
organizations. In the United States, common names for pesticide active
ingredients are established by the K-62 Committee of the American National
Standards Institute (ANSI). Other national standards organizations
(British, Canadian) and the International Standards Organization also
coordinate standardization of common names.

EPA encourages the development and use of common names. Common names
promote user understanding of chemical-based products, provide a ready
reference for persons without technical or scientific background, and can
foster informed choice in purchasing and using products, both pesticide and
non-pesticide.


II. THE CONSUMER LABELING INITIATIVE

In 1996, EPA began a Consumer Labeling Initiative (CLI), which has as
its goal the improvement of consumer labeling in general (focussing on
pesticide products). In the first phase of the CLI, individual interviews
were conducted with users of household pesticides (both indoor and outdoor)
and pesticide and non-pesticide cleaning agents. Interviews with consumers
and comments submitted to EPA indicated that average consumers have very
little knowledge of technical chemical names and found them uninformative
and difficult to use. Based on these comments, the Consumer Labeling
Initiative Phase I Report recommended that EPA increase the use of common
names on labels.

Although users of pesticides are the primary audience of the pesticide
label, others rely on the label for information about the pesticide. In
particular, medical personnel and poison control centers may need to know
the identity of the active ingredients in order to provide proper treatment
in an emergency. Persons suspecting pesticide exposure or poisoning are
instructed to bring the labeled container with them when they seek
treatment. Hazardous materials personnel may require a full chemical name
in case of a spill, leakage, or transportation incident. Consequently, EPA
must balance the desire by consumers and users for simplicity in chemical
names with the potential need for more technical information for others.

EPA believes that it can forego scientific chemical names on the
labels of many products where a common name has been established either by
a standards organization, by the Agency itself, or through long usage. EPA
also believes that medical personnel and others who may need a more
specific chemical name have numerous resources at their disposal to
translate a common name into its chemical name and are knowledgeable or
trained enough to do so quickly and easily.


III. NAMING ACTIVE INGREDIENTS IN PESTICIDE PRODUCTS

FIFRA sec. 2(q)(2)(A) requires that each pesticide product bear an
ingredients statement, which must include the name and percentage of each
active ingredient. Labeling regulations in 40 CFR 156.10(g) require that
the name used in the ingredient statement be:

". . the accepted common name, if there is one, followed by the
chemical name. The common name may be used alone only if it is
well-known. If no common name has been established, the chemical
name alone shall be used."

The regulations do not define "accepted common name." Currently, the
Agency uses a chemical vocabulary list that includes identifiers for a
common name (both ANSI-approved names and other common names), the Chemical
Abstracts Service Registry number (the CAS number), multiple chemical names
and multiple trade names. Moreover, EPA has not specified which common
names are "well-known" enough that a common name alone suffices for the
ingredients statement. Today's notice states a new Agency position which
allows the use of ANSI-approved common names and certain other common names
alone in label ingredients statements.

When required, the chemical name that must be used in ingredients
statements is that established by the Chemical Abstracts Service. The CAS
name corresponds to a unique CAS Registry number (CAS number) by which the
chemical may be identified regardless of what chemical name variant, common
names, synonyms or trade names the chemical may also have.


IV. POLICY

This policy applies only to pesticide active ingredients; inert
ingredients are not eligible.

A. ANSI common names. A common name that is approved by ANSI may be
used in the label ingredients statement without the accompanying chemical
name. A registrant who is unsure whether a common name has been approved
by ANSI, and thus may be used alone in the ingredients statement may
contact Kerry Leifer of EPA at 703-308-8811, or Mr. Glenn Hanes of the K-62
Committee, at the address at the end of this notice. Appendix A of this
notice lists all pesticide active ingredient names currently approved by
ANSI for which a product is registered. EPA believes this list to be
comprehensive, but if an ANSI-approved common name has been omitted, it may
still be used alone in the ingredients statement.

B. Other acceptable common names. Appendix B to this notice lists
other names, not established by ANSI, which may also be used alone in the
ingredients statement without an accompanying chemical name. These names
may be:

Names adopted by EPA for use on labels
Shorter and more familiar chemical name variants
Names that have become well-known through wide usage
Names that have been approved by another recognized standards-setting
organization.

Most of these additional common names are those approved by the
International Standards Organization (ISO) or the British Standards
Institute (BSI). This list may be expanded in the future. EPA welcomes
suggestions for additional common names that could be included on this
list. Currently the list does not include biochemical or microbial active
ingredients. EPA is exploring how such names may be best expressed for
user understanding.

Finally, EPA intends to modify its new OPUS-based chemical vocabulary
database system to include a specific field for the label ingredients name
which would identify the acceptable name for use in the ingredients
statement, whether that name is a common name alone, a chemical name alone,
or a combination of common and chemical name.

C. Seeking ANSI approval. EPA prefers that common names for
chemicals be established through standards-setting organizations such as
ANSI. Registrants are strongly encouraged to seek ANSI approval of
additional common names for chemicals for which common names are not yet
available. Appendix C to this notice is an information sheet issued by the
K-62 Committee on how to apply for ANSI common names.

D. CAS numbers. When a common name alone is permitted on the label,
registrants should include the CAS registry number of the active ingredient
to provide a reference for those who need to know the chemical name. The
CAS number need not figure prominently in the ingredients statement, but
may appear as a substatement or footnote to the ingredients statement.

This policy applies solely to label declarations of ingredients.
This policy does not supersede or modify requirements for identifying
ingredients in applications, documents, studies, or reports to EPA,
including the Confidential Statement of Formula. These must continue to
identify fully, as applicable, chemical names, common names, synonyms,
trade names and numerical identifiers of each chemical.

EPA will initiate rulemaking to revise its labeling regulations in 40
CFR 156.10 to conform to this policy change; however, in the interest of
improving pesticide labeling, EPA is proceeding immediately to permit
registrants to make this change voluntarily. No registrant is required to
revise its labels in response to this notice; however, EPA encourages
registrants to do so when labels are routinely revised for other reasons.


V. PROCEDURE

To make it convenient and easy for this policy to be implemented, EPA
will allow the change to be made by notification to the Agency, as follows:

A. Products currently bearing both a common name and a chemical
name. Registrants who wish to modify a label to delete the chemical name
of an active ingredient with an ANSI or EPA-approved common name may do so
by notification to EPA. The registrant should:

1. Submit an Application for Amended Registration, listing in
section II, "Notification to modify ingredients statement to
delete chemical name."

2. Submit two copies of the modified labeling.

3. Submit a modified Confidential Statement of Formula if the
current CSF does not already include the common name.

B. Products currently bearing only a chemical name. A registrant
who wishes to modify a label to substitute an ANSI- or EPA-approved common
name for the chemical name of an active ingredient should:

1. Submit an Application for Amended Registration, listing in
Section II, "Notification to modify ingredients statement to
substitute common name for chemical name";

2. Submit two copies of the modified labeling; and

3. Submit a modified Confidential Statement of Formula if the
current CSF does not already include the common name.

Each notification under under V.A. or B. should include the following
certification statement:

This notification is consistent with the provisions of PR Notice 97-5
and EPA regulations at 40 CFR 152.46, and no other changes have been
made to the labeling or the confidential statement of formula of this
product. I understand this it is a violation of 18 U.S.C. 1001 to
willfully make any false statement to EPA. I further understand that
if this notification is not consistent with the terms of PR Notice 97-5
and 40 CFR 152.46, this product may be in violation of FIFRA and I may
be subject to enforcement action and penalties under sections 12 and 14
of FIFRA.

C. To add a CAS Registry number. Registrants who wish to add CAS
numbers for ingredients to their ingredients statement may do so without
notification to EPA (a "non-notification" under 40 CFR 152.46).


VI. COMPLIANCE

No registrant is required to make this change; a registrant may
continue to include both the common name and the chemical name of the
active ingredient(s) in the ingredients statement. EPA will not consider a
product bearing a permitted common name without the accompanying chemical
name to be misbranded within the meaning of FIFRA sec. 12 solely because of
that change.

Appendix C
PR Notice 97-5

April 1996

PROCEDURES TO BE FOLLOWED BY SPONSORS OF PROPOSED
COMMON NAMES FOR PEST CONTROL CHEMICALS

The basic instructions to complete the application are contained in
the document K62.1-1985, Common Name for a Pest Control Chemical -
Procedure for Acceptance. Another document useful in selecting a common
name is ISO 257. Both are available from ANSI's Sales Department, 11 West
42nd Street, New York, New York 10036 (telephone number 212-642-4900).

Some of the information needed in the application is the Chemical
Abstracts (CA) chemical name, the Chemical Abstracts Service Registry
Number, and both molecular and structural formulae. Prior to submit the
application, a copy of the chemical information should be sent to the K62
committee contact with the Chemical Abstracts Service:

Dr. Dan Stossel
Chemical Abstracts Service
Department 64
P.O. Box 3012
Columbus, Ohio 43210

Phone: 614-447-3600, ext. 2950
FAX: 614-447-3713, Attn: Dr. Dan Stossel, Dept 64

He will verify the CAS nomenclature, drawing of the structures, and
the CAS registry numbers that are cited. He is also the person to contact
if a CAS registry number assignment is needed. Often, Dr. Stossel can
supply helpful comments on the use of ISO Recommended Syllables and give an
opinion as to the likelihood of acceptance of the selected common name.
His letter of response/approval should then be included in the submission.

It is a principle that common names shall not be liable to confusion
with commercial trademarks. To check this as far as is practicable,
sponsors of common names are required to obtain, pay for, and submit to the
Secretariat, reports of trademark searches in classes 1 and 5 of the
following registers.

If for U.S. use only, ANSI requires a search from:

(a) The United States of America. This includes a Patent and
Trademark Office (PTO) and common law search.

If for international use, ISO requires a trademark search from:

(a) International listings
(b) The United States of America (as above)
(c) The United Kingdom
(d) The sponsor's country (same as (b) if U.S.A. submission)

If the proposed common name is already established as an International
Nonproprietary Name (INN) for the same pesticide or other agrochemical,
only a United States of America trademark search is required. Additional
information on trademark searches is available.

Note: It is permissible for the name that is being proposed as a common
name to be registered as a trademark in order to protect it until the
common name has been adopted by ISO. All such rights have, however, to be
relinquished as soon as the common name has been so adopted.

It should be noted, however, that if a proposed common name be
unacceptable at any stage for any reason, and a replacement common name
considered, it is usually necessary for further trademark reports to be
submitted. The reports are not required for common name proposals formed by
attaching suffixes to common names for which trademark reports have
previously been submitted.

Submit 25 copies of each document you submit. This is indicated in
ANSI K62.1-1985. Be sure to include 25 copies of any required trademark
searches. All of these requested copies can be photocopies of the original
materials.

ANSI charges an application fee of $900. When making your formal
submission, a check should be made out to, and sent directly to: ANSI, c/o
Fran Schrotter (Re: K62 Application Fee), 11 West 42nd Street, New York,
New York 10036. Your cover letter should indicate the proposed common
name for which the fee applies. Please courtesy copy Glenn Hanes. Only
the check is to go to Ms. Schrotter. The formal submission and all
correspondence is to be sent to Mr. Hanes at the address below.

In summary, to complete the application:

1. Obtain CA names, CAS registry numbers, structures.

2. Have Dr. Stossel verify the chemical information.

3. Send application as stated in ANSI K62.1-1985 document.

4. Include Dr. Stossel's letter of response in the submission.

5. In the application or in a cover letter, clearly indicate if the
proposed name is approved, or is pending approval, as an ISO name. If a
U.S. trademark search was done as part of a recent ISO submission, that
search is probably sufficient to accompany this application.

6. Include the U.S. trademark search. Also include U.K. and
international (WIPO) trademark searches if consideration as an
international common name is requested.

7. Send 25 copies (photocopies) of the entire submission to Mr. Glenn
Hanes, Chairman, K62 Committee, at USDA, ARS, PRS, Bldg 1072, BARC-East,
10300 Baltimore Avenue, Beltsville, Maryland 20705-2350.

8. Only the application fee should be sent to: ANSI, c/o Fran
Schrotter (Re: K62 Application Fee), 11 West 42nd Street, New York, New
York 10036.

If you have procedural questions, please direct them to Mr. Glenn
Hanes. Voice: 301-504-8137, FAX: 301-504-8142, Attn: G. Hanes).
