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

We help US and International clients prepare their chemical packaging labeling for marketing success in Canada. It has been my pleasure to work with Nexreg for the last 2 years on many domestic and international jobs. They have provided my company, and my clients, with CCCR determination and other product assessments in a timely, professional and forthright manner. Their employees, such as James Dayus, have been proactive, professional and personable. I trust them to talk directly to my clients and they have never let me down on professional document completion or deadlines. They are great to work with and I wholeheartedly endorse their work.
