Abstract: This information collection activity notifies the EPA of supplemental distribution of registered pesticide products. As mandated by FIFRA, as amended, EPA is responsible for the regulation of pesticides. FIFRA section 3(e) (7 U.S.C. 136a(e)) allows pesticide products with the same formulation, label claims, and manufacturer as a registered product to be distributed under the same registration as the basic product. Pesticide registrants may distribute or sell registered pesticides under a different product name in addition to the registered name, or under a different entity's name and address. Such distribution and sale are termed “supplemental distribution” and the product is termed a “distributor product.” EPA requires pesticide registrants who enter into supplemental distribution agreements with other companies to submit EPA Form 8570-5, Notice of Supplemental Distribution of a Registered Pesticide Product. Supplemental registrations are only an extension of a currently federally registered pesticide product.
Form Number: 8570-5.
Respondents/Affected Entities: Pesticide and other agricultural chemical manufacturing.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory pursuant to Section 3(e) of FIFRA, as amended. Regulations pertaining to supplemental distribution of pesticide products are contained in Title 40 CFR part 152.132.
Estimated number of respondents: 1,885 (total).
Frequency of response: On occasion.
Total estimated burden: 603 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
Total estimated costs: $54,463 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the estimates: There are no changes in the estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB.
