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.

Full specifications for text.pdf label submissions

The following guidance is provided for creating and submitting product labels in electronic format to EPA. Submission of electronic labels to EPA is voluntary, but if done then two specifications are mandatory:

  • the label must be a text .PDF (not an image .PDF) and
  • the .PDF file name format must be used.

Registrants are requested to adhere to the remaining guidance whenever possible although some variation is permissible.
