Section 5: What are the types of labels and labeling?
- The four types of labels and labeling are: master label, sub-label or split-label, supplemental distributor labeling, and supplemental labeling.
- A master label contains claims and directions for all of the approved uses for a given product.
- A sub-label or split-label contains claims and directions for only a portion of the approved uses under a given master label.
- Supplemental distributor labeling includes labels for a product that is registered to one company, but distributed by another company.
- Supplemental labeling includes labels that contain newly approved uses, use directions, or other instructions that have been added since the last accepted master label.
- What are the two types of supplemental labeling discussed in this section?
Supplemental distributor labeling and supplemental labeling.
- Does a product's master label contain claims and directions for some or all its approved uses?
- Is a sub-label/split-label considered by regulators a complete or partial label?
A complete label. (It contains all of the required labeling elements for regulatory and enforcement purposes, but pertains to only some of the product's approved uses.)
- Which type of label or labeling does not require EPA review?
Supplemental distributor labeling.
- What type of label or labeling can contain instructions that are not covered by the master label?
