About this SBAR Panel
What is the Implication of the Rulemaking on Small Entities?
EPA is developing a rulemaking to modify the minimum risk pesticides exemption under 40 CFR 152.25(f) to exclude personally applied insect repellents from the exemption and require an abbreviated data set for such products. EPA is taking this action because these pesticides claim to control pests of significant public health importance.
How Can I Learn More?
