Action Code Interpretation

An Experimental Use Permit (EUP) application for food use(s) of an active ingredient that is not contained as an active ingredient in any currently U.S. registered pesticide product. The application proposes a 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 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 simultaneously. A credit of 45% of the New Active Ingredient fee will be applied to the application that follows.

Examples such as:

  • Pre- and post-harvest use on crops (other than agricultural fungicides and aquatic herbicides, which are handled as conventional pesticides)
  • Animal drinking water treatment (meat, meat by-products, and/or milk tolerance)
  • Process water treatment for post harvest use (field washing of raw agricultural commodities)
  • Treatment of permanent or semi-permanent food contact surfaces (sanitizers and disinfectants)

    Note: See A390 for additional examples.

45% of this categoryís fee will be credited against the new active ingredientís application fee whose submission follows that of this EUP.

All of the inerts used in the product must be either approved or pending with the Agency for the applicable uses.

The Agency will provide the applicant with a pre-decisional determination 4 weeks prior to the PRIA decision review time due date which specifies any label changes that have to be made in order to grant the requested experimental use permit. If the label issues cannot be resolved prior to the PRIA decision review time due date and if a PRIA due date time extension has not been agreed upon, then the Agency will issue to the applicant its regulatory decision with the specific label changes and supporting documentation on or just before the PRIA decision review time due date. At that time the applicant must either (a) agree to all of the label changes and submit a revised label that incorporates all of these label changes; or (b) does not agree with one or more of the label changes and request up to 30 days to reach agreement with the Agency and submit a revised label that incorporates all of the agreed upon label changes, which the Agency has 2 business days to review; or (c) withdraw the application without prejudice.
