Checklists for 45/90 Preliminary Technical Screen

We use these checklists to ensure that the application is ready for in depth review. Applicants can use them to help ensure their applications are complete. You may submit the checklist with the application.

FIFRA section 33(f)(4)(B), “Initial Content and Preliminary Technical Screenings” directs the Agency to conduct a preliminary technical screen of the application. This screening is conducted no later than 45 days after the start of the decision review period for actions with decision review time periods equal to or less than 6 months and no later than 90 days after the start of the decision review period for actions with decision review time periods greater than 6 months. In conducting this technical screen, the Agency determines whether:

  • the application and the data and information submitted with the application are accurate and complete, and
  • the application, data and information are consistent with the proposed labeling and any proposed tolerance or tolerance exemption, and
  • the application, data and information are such that subject to full review could result in the granting of the application.

If the application fails the technical screen, and the deficiencies cannot be corrected by the applicant within 10 business days after receipt of the Agency’s notification of the failure, the Agency will reject the application. We use the Fee Reduction Tables to determine what amount of the fee we will retain.
