Action Code Interpretation

An application that proposes a food use for a microbial or biochemical pesticide active ingredient that is not currently contained as an active ingredient in any U.S. registered pesticide product. The use requires the establishment of a tolerance exemption under section 408 of the FFDCA. The application submission must contain a petition to establish a tolerance exemption for all food/feed commodities covered by the pending registration application(s). All uses (food and non-food) included in any original application or petition for a new active ingredient are covered by the base fee for the application in this category if submitted within the original application. Examples of food uses include: use on foods, for example, corn or apples; aquatic uses involving potable water, irrigation, or requiring tolerances for fish, or shellfish; uses on areas where food may be grown or raised such as pasture, rangeland, home garden, beehive, and uses involving livestock, such as livestock housing, livestock dips, and livestock ear tags.

All of the inerts used in the product must be either approved, pending with the Agency, or a new inert is submitted within the package for the applicable uses.

A maximum of five new products are covered by the base fee. After the first five new products, each application for an additional new product or new inert ingredient approval that is submitted within this new active ingredient package is subject to the registration service fee for a new product or a new inert ingredient approval. All such associated applications that are submitted together will be subject to the new active ingredient decision review time.

Until the new active ingredient is approved, any subsequent application for another new product containing the same active ingredient or an amendment to the proposed labeling will be charged a new active ingredient service fee and decision review timeframe.

If the applicant on his own initiative submits any additional information that was neither requested nor required by the Agency, after completion of the technical deficiency screening, and which does not itself constitute a covered registration application, the applicant will be charged an additional 25% of the full registration service fee for the new active ingredient application.
