Pesticide Products within the Personal Care Industry: Regulatory Requirements

The pesticide/biocide industry can be difficult to navigate. We will discuss manufacturers wanting to formulate (and register) personal care products under FIFRA along with toll manufacturer obligations and what they need to know. We will cover the different types of registrations, what it means to be a primary registrant or a supplemental distributor of another’s primary registration, biocidal claims and the regulations governing pesticide/biocidal products. You will get a basic understanding of FIFRA: regulatory actions, data requirements, options, and limitations.
