How to submit your application directly to EPA.


Action Code Interpretation:

An application that proposes the first food use.  First food use includes a proposed use for any U. S. registered active ingredient for which there is no registered food use.  The use may require the establishment of, or the exemption from the requirement of a tolerance under section 408 of the FFDCA.  The application submission must contain a petition to establish tolerances or exemption(s) from tolerance for all food/feed commodities covered by the pending registration application(s). All food uses included in any original application or petition for the first food use are covered by the base fee for the application in this category if submitted simultaneously.  Some examples of food uses include corn, apples, and aquatic uses involving potable water, irrigation, or requiring tolerances for fish, or shellfish, pasture, rangeland, home garden, beehive, livestock, livestock housing, livestock dips, and livestock ear tags.

A “reduced risk” submission must accompany the application for registration.  The Agency’s Reduced Risk Committee will evaluate the submission and make the determination, based on criteria listed in PR Notice 97-3 and FIFRA 3(10) (B) (-iv), whether the requested use(s) qualify as “reduced risk” when compared to currently registered pesticides for the same use(s). The reduced risk status of any use of a chemical is an initial assessment.  Should information warrant, or should the Agency determine at any time that the data base for the chemical is unacceptable or upon a more thorough review found to be insufficient to demonstrate that the use/application is reduced risk, the Agency may reject reduced risk status.  In the event that any uses do not qualify as “reduced risk” by decision of the Reduced Risk Committee, the application will not receive the reduced risk decision timeframes.  The fee category will be changed to the non-reduced risk category and the action will receive the longer timeframes (e.g. from an R160 New Use, First Food Use, “reduced risk” to an R150 New Use, First Food Use).
