How to submit your application directly to EPA.
|Action Code Interpretation|
An application that proposes a new direct food use for an active ingredient with a current EPA registration. Any use which either (1) requires the establishment or exemption from a tolerances, (2) is of a different use pattern (i.e. aquatic, terrestrial, outdoor, etc.) from what is currently registered, or (3) could result in the increase of exposure or a change in the route of exposure (ex. changes to application rate or changes to the application method) from that previously assessed by the agency, would be considered a new use (40CFR 152.3)
All of the inerts used in the product must be either approved or pending with the Agency for the applicable uses.
Amendment applications to add new use(s) to registered product labels are covered by the base fee for this category as long as they are all submitted in the same package. Each application for a new product submitted in this package and/or new inert approval, however, is subject to its own registration service fee. The only exception would be if the new use(s) were to be added only to a new product (no amendments to registered product labels in the application package) in which case the review of the one new product application would be covered by the base fee for the new uses.
Any new product or amendment to the proposed labeling, which contains the same new use(s), that is submitted subsequent to the submission of the new use application but prior to its decision review time expiration date, will be deemed a separate new use application subject to a separate fee and new decision review time.
If the applicant on his own initiative submits any additional information that was neither requested nor required by the Agency after completion of the technical deficiency screening, and which does not itself constitute a covered registration application, the applicant will be charged an additional 25% of the full registration service fee for the new uses application.
Finally, if the new use(s) application includes nonfood and food/indirect food uses, the appropriate fee is due for each type of new use, and the longest decision review time applies to all of the new uses requested in the application.
The Agency will provide the applicant with a pre-decisional determination 4 weeks prior to the PRIA decision review time due date which specifies any label changes that have to be made in order to grant the requested additional food use registration. If the label issues cannot be resolved prior to the PRIA decision review time due date and if a PRIA due date time extension has not been agreed upon, then the Agency will issue to the applicant its regulatory decision with the specific label changes and supporting documentation on or just before the PRIA decision review time due date. At that time the applicant must either (a) agree to all of the label changes and submit a revised label that incorporates all of these label changes; or (b) does not agree with one or more of the label changes and request up to 30 days to reach agreement with the Agency and submit a revised label that incorporates all of the agreed upon label changes, which the Agency has 2 business days to review; or (c) withdraw the application without prejudice.
The Antimicrobial Pesticide Use Site Index (USI) describes and provides examples of direct food, indirect food and nonfood uses for proposed applications. The USI also provides guidance to determine if proposed or labeled uses require the establishment of a tolerance or exemption from the requirement of a tolerance.
