The Pesticide Product and Label System (PPLS) provides a collection of pesticide product labels (Adobe PDF format) that have been accepted by EPA under Section 3 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). Information not included on PPLS:
Company numbers for companies with no registered pesticide products; and
Supplemental distributor product labels.
New labels were added to PPLS on April 01, 2023.
Pesticide product labels provide critical information about how to safely handle and use registered pesticide products. An accepted pesticide product label represents the full content of EPA’s registration decision regarding that product. Pesticide labels contain detailed information on the use, storage, and handling of a product. This information will be found on EPA stamped-accepted labels and, in some cases, in subsequent related correspondence, which is also included in PPLS. You may need to review several PDF files for a single product to determine the complete current terms of registration.
There are differences between product labels provided in PPLS and those found in the marketplace. The EPA stamped-accepted label describes the legal requirements for sale and use of that pesticide in the United States. States also register pesticide products and may apply more restrictive requirements than those found on the EPA label. Companies may add or change graphics, alter the product name (after notifying EPA), and add other marketing information. The label is the law!
PPLS has been modified (effective July 2020) to display all brand names associated with a particular registration. These names each have their own status indicator as to whether the name is active or inactive as determined by the registrant.
