How to submit your application directly to EPA.

Action Code Interpretation:

An application that proposes a new non-food use.  A non-food use includes a proposed use that is not a food use as described in the food use categories. A different pattern in a non-food indoor use that significantly changes or increases exposure such as a dosage rate increase or different method of application will result in the application that belongs in this category. The proposed use is for use inside of manmade structures and is not a food use.   Some examples of indoor uses are termiticides and indoor residential treatments (i.e. cockroach treatments). Treatment of ornamentals in a shade house is classified as outdoor uses and is not covered in this category.

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 (c (10) (B) (-iv), whether the requested use(s) qualify as “reduced risk” when compared to currently registered pesticides for the same use(s). In the event that any uses do not qualify as reduced risk, the application will not receive the reduced risk decision timeframes. 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 R270 New Use, Non-Food Use “reduced risk” to an R260 New Use, Non-Food Use).
