Incident Data System (IDS)

This online database provides information on pesticide-related incidents (both individually reported incidents and those submitted in aggregate) for the past 10 years. The database is updated every month to add the most recent month of incidents.

EPA has limited confidence in the accuracy and validity of the data because the data entries are reports of one or more individual’s perspective of what happened. These perspectives can vary widely, and EPA needs to verify the legitimacy of a report before using it for regulatory decisions. Caution should be used when analyzing these data as EPA does not guarantee the completeness or adequacy of the contents of the Incident Data System.

Search the Database

The database may be searched by entering specific criteria (which are not case sensitive). Leaving all the search options blank will return a listing of all the incidents in the database. 

After the results are displayed, you may further filter, format, or download the content of your search results by clicking on the "Actions" button at the top of the screen or by clicking on the the report column headings for additional search, sort, formatting and help options. More information on how to navigate the database can be found in the Incident Data System User Guide.
