Conclusion of Pilot and Implementation Strategy for Use of Standardized Templates for Pet Spot-on Incident Reporting

As part of the Pet Spot-on Enhanced Reporting Pilot, five registrants volunteered to submit quarterly pet spot-on product incident and sales data for the year of 2016 using EPA’s draft standardized reporting templates. Throughout the duration of the Pilot, EPA sought comment from the public and the Pilot participants to inform the usability and feasibility of the templates. Adjustments were made to the templates accordingly, and EPA determined that use of the standardized templates does provide data in a format that can be readily analyzed in a meaningful way and will improve the Agency’s ability to evaluate safety of pet spot-on products.

On May 10, 2018, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time, EPA will host a webinar to discuss the conclusion of the Pet Spot-on Enhanced Reporting Pilot and describe the implementation process for using EPA’s standardized templates. Manufacturers of all spot-on products with registrations that require the submission of enhanced reporting and of new spot-on products submitted for registration are encouraged to attend the webinar.
