EPA Pesticide Registration

In order to sell a pesticide product in the US, the product must be registered by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Products requiring US EPA registration include antimicrobials, insecticides, fungicides, rodenticides, disinfectants, sanitizers, water treatment disinfectants, animal repellents, swimming pool treatments, and other products formulated to kill, mitigate, or repel pests.
