| September 2, 2010

WASHINGTON - As part of a series of initiatives to improve pesticide labeling, EPA is working with external stakeholders to design a new system for delivering product labeling to pesticide users. The new approach, which could largely replace the paper-based system, will rely on users to contact either an official pesticide labeling website or a toll-free telephone number from which they can obtain the detailed use instructions that previously were attached to the product container.

This “web-distributed labeling system,” initially focusing on agricultural and industrial pesticides, will provide simplified container labels and rapid distribution of up-to-date product labeling. EPA expects to see the following benefits from this system:

faster access to new pesticide uses
quicker implementation of public health and environmental protective measures
improved compliance with label directions
lower costs for industry and EPA
