Details on Exclusive Use Data Protection for Minor Use Registrations

The two documents below provide information about issues related to exclusive use data protection for minor use registrations, including extension of the exclusive use period and establishing a new exclusive use period:

  • "Exclusive Use Data Protection for Minor Use Registrations - Questions and Answers" was published in 2014 and describes the review process and basic parameters for obtaining and extending protection of exclusive use of data.
  • "Extension of Exclusive Data and Minor Use Designation, Suggestions to Applicants for Agronomic Information - Questions and Answers" was published in 2016. It augments the information available in the earlier document, particularly related to the criteria used to evaluate applications.
