PRN 2012-1: Material Safety Data Sheets as Pesticide Labeling

This PR Notice updates and clarifies EPA’s determination in PR Notice 92-4 that a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) (also referred to as a Safety Data Sheet (SDS)) that accompanies a pesticide product is considered part of the pesticide’s labeling but may accompany a pesticide product without notification to or approval by the Agency, provided such labeling is consistent with the 40 CFR Part 156 labeling requirements.  Read PRN 92-4.
