The Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 significantly altered the laws governing pesticides. The Pesticide Regulation Deskbook provides up-to-date, detailed analysis by leading experts of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act and the pesticide requirements under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
Part one of the book integrates statutory and regulatory provisions, Federal Register preambles, and agency memoranda and guidance to provide the clearest, most comprehensive guide available to the regulatory programs governing pesticides. The analysis discusses topics ranging from labeling and packaging requirements to EPA rulemaking, enforcement, and judicial review. Part two of the book provides up-to-date text of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, portions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as well as the Food Quality Protection Act.
