Today the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that BASF Corporation (BASF) has agreed to pay $5,200 for importing nearly 20,000 lbs of an improperly labeled wood preservative in violation of the Federal Insecticide Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). BASF is a large international chemical company.

"It is important that shipments have the required labels because they have information about the product's environmental and human toxicity, what to do in case of an accidental exposure and how to safely and effectively use and handle the pesticide," said Scott Downey, EPA's Pesticide and Toxics Unit Manager in Seattle.

Testimonial

Tectran used Nexreg for preparation of our MSDS and label for new Pendilube product launch. We found Mike Moffatt to be very helpful and thorough. We knew of most of the regulations that we were required to meet but with his help and document preparation we were able to have the confidence that we were covering all the required regulations that impacted our product.
