Due to a lapse in appropriations, EPA websites will not be regularly updated. In the event of an environmental emergency imminently threatening the safety of human life or where necessary to protect certain property, the EPA website will be updated with appropriate information. Please note that all information on the EPA website may not be up to date, and transactions and inquiries submitted to the EPA website may not be processed or responded to until appropriations are enacted.

We've made some changes to 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.

Ordering Analytical Standards from the National Pesticide Standard Repository

The EPA National Pesticide Standard Repository distributes analytical standards to federal, state and tribal laboratories involved in performing environmental, food, or product monitoring for the enforcement of United States federal and state pesticide laws such as the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act.

We are only able to provide these materials to qualified enforcement laboratories. We are unable to send these materials to foreign or domestic research laboratories or foreign enforcement laboratories.

If you do not qualify to receive standards from our repository, we suggest that you contact a commercial supplier of analytical standards or request help directly from the pesticide manufacturer.
