Effective October 1, 2013, the Pesticide Registration Improvement Extension Act (PRIA 3) reauthorized the Pesticide Registration Improvement Renewal Act of 2007 (PRIA 2) for five more years, until 2017. Both Acts established pesticide registration service fees for registration actions. The category of action, the amount of the pesticide registration service fee, and the corresponding decision review periods by year are prescribed in these statutes. Their goal is to create a more predictable evaluation process for affected pesticide decisions, and couple the collection of individual fees with specific decision review periods. They also promote shorter decision review periods for reduced-risk applications.

- PRIA Pesticide Registration Milestone Tracking Email software upgrades deployed December 31, 2013. The Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) has developed software enhancements to support the PRIA Set-aside requirement for producing Registration Tracking Milestone email messages. These messages will inform registrant contacts when any of their PRIA submissions reach each of the seven defined tracking milestones.
The seven milestones are:
- Application receipt date; receipt number assigned
- PRIA category(ies) assigned; waiver decision, if applicable, completed; payment completed; 21-day screen timeframe expired; PRIA start date; PRIA due date; pre-decisional determination due date, if applicable;
- Contact information for PM assigned to your application; date data sent into review;
- 45/90 technical screen timeframe expired;
- Actual last science review completion date;
- Pre-decisional determination date reached, if applicable
- Regulatory decision completed
Automated emails are sent out when each milestone is reached. The registrant must supply an email address for each application to receive email tracking milestones. This tracking system will not replace current registrant-PM communications.
- Please visit http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/regulating/registering/submissions/ to access the revisions to e-Dossier Builder and OPP’s e-Submission .XML Builder Guidance. These changes consist of the insertion of an email address-specific field. Registrants must provide this optional information for each submission in order to receive milestone tracking emails.
