Notice on Publishing Revised Approved Label Content by the Institute for the Control of Agrochemicals, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of the People's Republic of China
To all units concerned：
For the purpose of implementing the “Measures for the Administration of Pesticide Labels and Manuals”, the electronic label layout announced on the China Pesticide Information Network will be revised since August 1, 2019, with the approved label content published only. Related matters are hereby notified as follows.
I. Published approved label content
In accordance with the newly revised “Measures for the Administration of Pesticide Labels and Manuals”, when a pesticide is in process of registration, only the content about safety and validity of the label will be reviewed, while the label format as well as the product certification, enterprise relevance and like information marked by the enterprise will not be subject to reviewing. The approved information includes:
(I) Information about the certificate for pesticide registration, including the number and holder of the certificate for pesticide registration, pesticide name, formulation, toxicity and symbol, total content of active ingredients, active ingredients and their contents, scope of use, and method of use.
(II) Content about safety and validity, including product performance, technical requirements on usage, precautions, first aid measures in case of poisoning, storage and transportation methods, and a warranty period.
(III) Other content, including remarks, approval date, and re-approval date, wherein the remarks mainly include the words such as “Restricted for Use", the specified pattern of rodenticide, and the indication of the active ingredients of certain pesticides.
II. Collection method for electronic labels
Registrant applying for pesticide registration or modification of pesticide registration shall submit an electronic label on the China Pesticide Digital Supervision & Management Platform (www.icama.cn). Once approved, a new label will be issued with an electronic label published.
For registered products without electronic label information, the holder of the certificate for pesticide registration may submit a re-approval application to the Government Service Hall of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, and the label will be published once approved. The “Pesticide Label Collection System” on the China Pesticide Information Network will be closed on September 1, 2019.
III. Inquiry method for electronic labels
The electronic labels of pesticide products that have been approved for registration will be published on the China Pesticide Information Network (www.icama.org.cn). You can visit the “Data Center” of the China Pesticide Information Network, and enter the number of the certificate for pesticide registration in “Registered Data” for inquiry. The visitors can click on the "Approval Date" or "Re-approval Date" to find the corresponding label approval content. The approval dates of most labels are difficult to inquire, so the approval dates of such electronic labels are indicated by "/".
