Updated Pesticide Label Review Manual Now Available

The Environmental Protection Agency has updated Chapters 15 and 16 of the Pesticide Label Review Manual (LRM). This manual began as a guide for EPA label reviewers, and now it also serves as a tool to assist EPA’s stakeholders in understanding the pesticide labeling process. The LRM is also useful in understanding approaches for how labels should generally be drafted.

Chapter 15: Company Name and Address – Removes non-label-related instructions on submitting address change requests, and updates the National Pesticide Information Center’s contact information, including new hours of operation.

Chapter 16: Graphics and Symbols – Adds hyperlinks to graphic and logo examples, and adds QR (quick response) code as an acceptable symbol when used only for retail pricing.

Editorial changes to both chapters include adding a table of contents, adding chapter editorial notes, updating existing hyperlinks, and reformatting text, style, and layout for conciseness and readability.

Please use the Pesticide Labeling Questions & Answers – Form to submit questions or comments on the LRM.
