Jun. 11 – US: Standards for Pesticide Containers and Containment

From the EPA:

Pesticide Management and Disposal; Standards for Pesticide Containers and Containment: Proposed Amendments

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to amend the container and containment regulations to provide a 1-year extension of the labeling compliance date from August 17, 2009 to August 17, 2010; to change the phrase “sold or distributed” to “released for shipment” as associated with all of the compliance dates; to provide for exceptions to the language requirements for some specific nonrefillable packages; to allow for waivers of certain label requirements for other refillable and nonrefillable containers on a case-by-case basis; and to correct typographical and other minor errors. In addition, the Agency is proposing to amend the definitions in 40 CFR part 152 to establish a definition of “released for shipment.” These changes are being proposed to address concerns raised by stakeholders and as a result of further Agency consideration.
