It is more than just, Read & follow the label. Pesticide Labeling

Label Provides Applicators: How to minimize risk to themselves, nontarget species & environment Ways to maximize efficacy of product Means to limit your liability Essential for following and enforcing laws

Educational tool Comprehensive use instructions In a perfect world. Registrants would create labeling that EPA

would approve without comment EPA would receive labels for review that would mitigate risks & meet regulatory standards Users would not only read, but also understand, and be willing to follow label instructions State Lead Agencies would never have to take

an enforcement action If that perfect world existed.. ..then this would be

Minnesota in January for at least a couple of days! But this is what it is Recent Progress on Labeling

The Label Review Manual has been revised and updated There has been significant input from stakeholders via the Enable the Label Blog EPA has developed training for it label reviewers

Can we.. Create labels that make sense to the user?

Core Principles for label Quality: Clarity Accuracy Clear Mandatory vs. Advisory statements Consistent with EPA Policy

Above all else, a label must be understood, which means using clear, unambiguous language, and a rational organization of the

information on the label. EPA, OPP Clarity If EPA label requirements are tied

to specific criteria such as toxicity levels or incident history, those criteria must be accurately applied to the product in question. Directions for use also must be accurately and clearly stated.

EPA, OPP Accuracy When a direction or precaution is intended to be mandatory &

enforceable, that intent must be clear..Conversely, advisory information must not be given the appearance of mandatory statements.. EPA, OPP

Mandatory vs. Advisory Mandatory: Shall Must Do this Do not Advisory?

Should May Recommended For best results Mandatory vs. Advisory Label reviewers need to apply all relevant requirements & policies,

and should not accept deviations.. .....the Label Review Manual provide(s) links to underlying regulations and policy documents. EPA, OPP

Consistent with policy 2,4,d Label WPS In Rights-of-Way? In Forestry? What is
