Section 18 & 24c Pesticide Labels for Special Need
- Section 18 Labels
Section 18 of FIFRA, the federal law which regulates pesticides, authorizes the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to exempt the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) from federal registration requirements if it is determined "emergency" conditions exist which require an exemption. An emergency condition is an urgent, non-routine situation resulting in dire consequences if the exemption is not granted. Section 18 exemptions primarily allow the use of a pesticide on a site for which it is not federally registered.
- 24(c) Special Local Needs Pesticide Labels
Under the authority section 24(c) of Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), states may register additional uses of a federally registered pesticide to meet Special Local Needs (SLNs) as long as there is a demonstrated SLNs and a tolerance, exemption from a tolerance, or other clearance under the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act.
