Below is the fee for your selected Fee Category for
Fiscal Year 2011 & 2012

Action Code Description
FY11/FY12 Fee After Reduction
R312 New product; requires approval of new non-food use inert; applicant initiated $9,151.00 $2,288.00

To pay the fee shown above, go to http://www.pay.gov and follow the instructions.

Action Code Interpretation:

An application for registration of a new an end-use or manufacturing use pesticide product containing an active ingredient that is currently registered in the US for the proposed non-food uses.  The proposed formulation contains an inert ingredient that has not been approved for non-food uses and the applicant requests that the inert ingredient be approved for a non-food uses.

The request for the new inert ingredient‘s use on non-food sites must include an application for registration of a new pesticide product.  All data (inert ingredient and end use product) and a request for approval of the non-food use inert ingredient must be submitted with the application. If a new product registration is not sought, then the request for non-food use falls outside of the scope of PRIA.

Approval of a safener does not fall within this category, but falls within the applicable new active ingredient category.
Data on the new non food inert ingredient:  OPP highly recommends the applicant request a meeting with IIAB staff (inertsbranch@epa.gov)  prior to product submission under PRIA to go over data needs.  Data to support the inert ingredient approval must accompany the application. 

All applications require the following:

  • A data matrix is required with the application.
  • Product chemistry data (Group A and B).  In some cases product chemistry data can be satisfied as outlined in Pesticide Registration Notice 98-1 (9 pp, 22.3 MB, About PDF).
  • All other inert ingredients must already be approved for the applicable uses in the product.
  • Acute toxicity, efficacy, public health pest efficacy, companion animal safety data and/or child resistant packaging data requirements must be addressed by using: 1) the cite-all method, or 2) selective data citation.  A rationale for a waiver or bridging of these data falls within this category. 
Since this category requires both an application for the product and inert ingredient information, the entire package must be processed together.  If one part of the package fails (i.e., inert ingredient or product specific data) then the whole category fails.  Any change to the application would require the applicant to withdraw their application and start the process application again.
