Label Review Manual

We consider this document to be an instructional aid that does not establish new guidance, but instead compiles existing interpretations of statutory and regulatory provisions and reiterates existing Agency policies.

We are interested in optimizing the usefulness of the Label Review Manual (LRM) as a tool for understanding the pesticide labeling process. The LRM is also useful in understanding approaches for how labels should generally be drafted. As always, we will consider each label on its own merits and will consider deviations from our policy in labeling under the appropriate provisions of FIFRA and its implementing regulations.

Submit errors or suggestions for the LRM on the Pesticide Labeling Questions and Answers page, which is a component of the Pesticide Labeling Consistency Web page.
