3. Inert Ingredients:

What is an “inert ingredient” – An inert ingredient is any substance (or group of structurally similar substances if designated by the Agency), other than an “active” ingredient, which is intentionally included in a pesticide product. It is important to note, the term “inert” does not imply that the chemical is nontoxic. Examples of inert ingredients include emulsifiers, solvents, carriers, aerosol propellants, fragrances and dyes.

EPA Listed Inert Ingredients – When we apply for an EPA product registration we need to make sure that all inert ingredients in the product formulation are approved for the proposed use. i.e. are included in the EPA Inert Ingredients List.

Trade Name Inert Ingredients – Formulators sometimes have difficulty determining whether a trade name product is permitted for use as an inert ingredient. To clarify the approved use of inert ingredients/mixtures, manufactures of trade name inert ingredients volunteered to participate in the development of a publicly-available list of trade name inert ingredients, along with the uses for which they are approved, and the manufacturer’s name.

For manufacturer of an inert ingredient we can assist to add your product into the EPA list of approved inert ingredients. For manufacturer of a trade name inert ingredient we can assist to have your trade name inert ingredient included in the publicly‐available “Trade Name Inert Ingredient” database. Contact us for details.

4. EPA Exemption for Minimum Risk Pesticides:

Exemption for a minimum risk pesticide – EPA has determined that certain “minimum risk pesticides” pose little to no risk to human health or the environment. Therefore EPA has exempted them from the EPA product registration.

How to qualify as a minimum risk pesticide – A minimum risk product must meet certain conditions as specified by EPA. A product that meets all of these conditions then is exempted from EPA product registration, i.e., the pesticide product does not need to be registered with EPA. 

We can help you to determine whether your product can be exempted for EPA registration. And we will help you to apply for the EPA exemption certificate.

5. EPA Vehicle and Engine Certification:

We help our clients to apply for EPA certification for Vehicle and Engine products including Portable Fuel Containers.

  • Register for EV-CIS: register with EPA to gain access to EV-CIS for the specific manufacturer code.
  • Account setup for EV-CIS: set up an account with EPA to establish the necessary EV-CIS roles.
  • Get Certificate of Conformity.

6. Amazon Requirements for EPA Registration:

Amazon Requirements for Pesticides and Pesticide Devices – If you supply products for sale on Amazon, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and Amazon policies applicable to those products and product listings. Per Amazon policy, only U.S. residents may sell pesticides and pesticide devices on Amazon.com. Details can be found here.

Compliance ID Attribute – Pesticide Marking – All listings of pesticides and pesticide devices require sellers to input a Pesticide Marking attribute. Listings of pesticide products and devices require evidence of an EPA registration and/or EPA establishment number or a certification that the product is exempt from EPA regulations.

You must provide a valid EPA registration number or EPA establishment number, as applicable, for each pesticide or pesticide device listing, or specify that your product qualifies for an exemption. Details can be found here.
