U.S. EPA has issued an updated schedule for the pesticide registration review program. As mandated by the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, EPA is reviewing each registered pesticide every 15 years to determine whether it still meets the FIFRA standard for registration. The updated schedule provides the timetable for opening dockets for the next several years of the registration review program, from fiscal year (FY) 2012 through 2015, and includes information on dockets that opened in FY 2007 through FY 2011. The schedule reflects the Agency’s plan to continue to open about 70 new dockets each year through 2017. Following this schedule, EPA will complete the first 15-year cycle of registration review by October 1, 2022, for all pesticides registered as of October 1, 2007.

EPA is announcing the updated schedule as provided in Sections 155.42(e) and 155.44 of the Procedural Regulations for Registration Review: Final Rule (document number EPA-HQ-OPP-2004-0404-0052 at www.regulations.gov). The Agency may consider issues raised by the public or a registrant when reviewing a posted schedule, to schedule a pesticide registration review, or to modify the schedule of a pesticide registration review as appropriate.  This schedule will be updated at least once every year.
