  • Biopesticides -这些产品来自具有杀虫剂作用的天然材料. 有三种类型:生化、微生物和植物合成保护剂(pip)。. These products are inherently less toxic, affect only the target pest and are used in very small quantities.
  • Conventional pesticides -这些除害剂通常是综合生产的,用于控制各种害虫,如杂草, insects, fungi, and rodents.
  • Pesticide device registration -这些装置的杀虫活性是由于物理或机械作用,或由于物质或物质混合物.

获得联邦注册所涉及的时间长短取决于许多因素,例如产品的建议用途, 产品的配方和如何满足数据要求. 通过在初次提交时提交质量包,并在审查过程中与EPA携手合作,可以避免延误. 钱柜平台可以提供准备农药申请包的时间估计,以及EPA提交申请包后审核该申请包的时间估计.

EPA农药注册所需的数据要求取决于建议的产品用途,包括位置和标签上的声明. 建议产品的配方也会影响所需数据的类型. 有很多方法可以满足数据需求,比如数据引用, waiver rationales and lab generation. The data requirements for pesticides can be found in 40 CFR Part 158. 钱柜平台可以通过注册策略评估文档或数据差距分析,为您的建议产品提供特定的数据需求列表.

在环保局注册农药的成本和费用根据很多因素有很大的不同. These factors include how the product will be used (for example, public health vs non-public health), the formulation of the product (for example, EPA数据库中新的活性成分与现有活性成分的对比), and how the data requirements will be addressed (for example, data citation vs lab generation). 钱柜平台可以根据要求提供特定于提议产品的成本估算.

农药在EPA的注册必须在其生命周期内通过各种义务进行维护. EPA requires annual maintenance fees to be paid per product. Furthermore, if EPA issues a data call-in that is applicable to your product, the data call-in must be addressed by the product registrant. Occasionally, EPA在数据调用之外发布了其他标签和数据命令,这些也必须被处理. Lastly, if a registrant owns an EPA-registered establishment facility, 年度报告是维持企业注册的必要条件. 钱柜平台可以协助公司完成上述任务以及其他EPA义务.
