A pesticide product label provides critical information about how to safely and legally handle and use such products. Unlike most other types of product labels, pesticide labels are legal documents, thereby making them legally enforceable, and all of them carry this statement: “It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.” In other words, the label is the law.
Besides just federal agencies, there are state agencies that enforce pesticide label requirements. Educational programs are required to certify pesticide users, and it is understood that the users read and follow the instructions listed on the label.
Most label statements are regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), however as a pesticide manufacturer, you are allowed to control some elements of your pesticide labels. The majority of the information you are printing falls under the regulated laws given from the EPA for each particular type of pesticide.
A primary function of the pesticide product label is to manage the potential risks that could rise from the use of pesticides. The regulations are there to keep the labels consistent, easy to understand, and clearly describe the proper use of each product, including the precautions to be taken when using the product.
