  1. Web-Distributed Labeling Update for CLA & RISE William Jordan Office of Pesticide Programs April 11, 2014

  2. Web-Distributed Labeling Overview • Voluntary system • Complete labeling still on pesticide container • Reference statement, unique identifier, and “released for shipment date” on the container or attached labeling • User has option to download “rendered labeling” • Streamlined use directions can now be available via website • Both container labeling and web-distributed labeling are legally valid • Overall goals • Make latest version of approved labeling available to user quickly • Improve users’ understanding of and compliance with pesticide labeling

  3. Web-Distributed Labeling:What it is not • Does not remove any labeling from the container • Not electronic submission or review of labels by EPA • Does not require standardized labeling • Does not diminish legal procedures that EPA must follow to change labeling • Does not change process registrants use to change labeling • Does not change users’ duty to follow labeling requirements • Gives the option to follow either container labeling or web-distributed labeling

  4. Web-Distributed Labeling: History • States presented the topic to OPP’s Office Director, Debbie Edwards, at the 2007 AAPCO meeting • EPA formed an internal team to discuss web-distributed labeling later in 2007 • Representation from OPP Divisions (AD, BPPD, FEAD, ITRMD, RD), OGC, OECA, OC, Regions, as well as 2 state regulators • EPA’s workgroup identified issues and areas for further consideration, drafted discussion papers, and conducted stakeholder outreach • Stakeholder engagement through individual meetings, PPDC subgroup, User Acceptance Pilot, Federal Register Notice, and draft Pesticide Registration Notice

  5. Pesticide Registration Notice • PR Notice 2014-1 • Signed March 2014 • Includes goals of WDL, terminology, suggested text for labeling, WDL content, website functionality • http://www.epa.gov/PR_Notices/ • Sample labeling • Master labeling with WDL statements • Correctly and incorrectly “rendered labeling” • Available on EPA’s website - http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/regulating/labels/distribution/

  6. Registrants’ Responsibilities • Add text referencing WDL to master label • Provide 2 samples of rendered labeling (electronic or paper) • Submit master label + sample rendered labeling either as: • Non-PRIA fast track amendment (only WDL) • Part of a PRIA action (WDL & additional changes) • Maynotadd WDL to labeling as a notification

  7. EPA Reviewers’ Responsibilities • Verify text referencing WDL is on master labeling • Check sample rendered labeling • Include WDL text • Include all applicable required sections (front panel, precautionary statements, directions for use, etc.) • OPTIONAL - Check URL if available • Verify website existence • Verify return of rendered labeling

  8. End Users’ Responsibilities • Find “unique identifier” and “released for shipment date” on container • Go to website listed on container labeling • Enter unique identifier, state, intended use site • Verify that the date the rendered labeling date is later than the released for shipment date on container • Follow either container label or WDL– do NOT mix and match directions from both

  9. Web-Distributed Labeling: Enforcement • Labeling is critical to ensuring that a pesticide’s use will not cause adverse effects • Web-distributed labeling must be enforceable in order to be implemented • Relies on current enforcement infrastructure, and specifies potential violations by registrants, users, and others • Significant interaction with states through AAPCO & SFIREG to confirm that enforcement would not be compromised
