We've made some changes to EPA.gov. If the information you are looking for is not here, you may be able to find it on the EPA Web Archive or the January 19, 2017 Web Snapshot.

EPA's website will operate in a diminished capacity on Saturday Feb 17, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to noon EST for routine maintenance. Some services, such as search, may be temporarily unavailable for brief periods during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.

How We Engage Our Pesticide Stakeholders

Our success is directly connected to our efforts to engage all stakeholders. In addition to meetings on pesticide-specific actions, we sponsor advisory committees that include representatives of pesticide manufacturers, consumer, health, and environmental organizations, academic institutions and others.

Our headquarters and regional offices partner with state, territory, and tribal governments to responsibly manage pesticide regulatory and enforcement programs. These programs:

  • Manage cooperative agreements with states, tribes, and territories for enforcing pesticide laws, directing applicator training and certification programs, and promoting initiatives that reduce pesticide risks.
  • Register pesticide producing establishments.
  • Monitor the importation and Internet sales of pesticides.
  • Communicate with the public on local pesticide issues.
