Draft Pesticide Registration Notice
September 17, 2001
The Environmental Protection Agency is announcing the availability of,
and seeking public comment on, a draft Pesticide Registration Notice (PR-Notice)
titled ``Spray and Dust Drift Label Statements for Pesticide Products.''
PR-Notices are issued by the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) to inform
pesticide registrants and other interested persons about important policies,
procedures and registration related decisions, and serve to provide guidance
to pesticide registrants and OPP personnel.
This particular draft PR-Notice provides guidance on drift label statements
for pesticide products. The purpose of this new labeling is to provide
pesticide registrants and applicators and other individuals
responsible for pesticide applications with improved and more consistent
product label statements for controlling pesticide drift from spray and
dust applications in order to be protective of human health and the environment.
The Agency invites comments on any aspect of the draft PR-Notice as well
as the specific issues addressed in the background section.
DATES: Comments, identified by docket control number OPP-00730, must be
received on or before November 20, 2001.
