Derived from natural materials, biopesticides, are inherently less toxic than conventional pesticides and when used as a component of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs, can greatly reduce conventional pesticide use and improve crop yields. EPA has regulatory authority over biopesticides as well as conventional pesticides and requires registration and evaluation of the product’s toxicity to humans and other organisms prior to issuing an approval for commercial marketing and use.

The process of biopesticide registrations is arduous. Applicants must have registered production facilities, years of documented safety studies and supporting toxicology reports for EPA to review as part of pre-submission considerations and formal reviews. Once approved, registrants are entirely responsible for their pesticide and pesticide labeling as required by Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and EPA regulations (40 CFR Part 152 and 169).

EAS Consulting Group assists clients with biopesticide applications and production facility registrations. Our team of experts include regulatory experts and toxicologists who can help with data analysis, facilitation of pre-submission meetings and preparation of submissions for FDA reviews.
