How to submit your application directly to EPA.

Action Code Interpretation:

An application that proposes a non-food use for an active ingredient with a current EPA registration.  The fee applies to each non-food use in this category requested in the application. A non-food use includes a proposed use that is not a “food use” as described in the food use categories. The product is for use inside a manmade structure or is a low exposure use pattern that requires minimal ecological and/or environmental fate data (see examples below) and that fits the definition of an antimicrobial found in FIFRA section 2(mm).  A different pattern of use that significantly changes or increases exposure such as a dosage rate increase or different method of application will result in the application being treated as a new use.

Examples include:

  • Residential use (i.e., carpet sanitizer, hard surface disinfectant)
  • Commercial, institutional, industrial premise and equipment (e.g. offices, hotels, industrial buildings, nursing homes)
  • Agricultural premise treatment (e.g., farm structures, buildings and equipment, animal drinking water equipment)
  • Materials Preservatives (e.g., adhesives, coatings, plastic, fabric)
  • Swimming pool, spa
  • Industrial processes and water systems treatment (e.g., reverse osmosis water systems, re-circulating cooling tower systems, evaporative condensers)
  • Medical premises and equipment (e.g., dental equipment, dental unit water lines, hospitals)
  • HVAC
  • Oil field (terrestrial)
  • Any of the above use patterns that would result in a significant increase in the level of exposure (increase in dosage rate, or a change in the route of exposure (fog vs. spray), to the active ingredient of man or other organisms.
