Title 7, Chapter 6. Insecticides and Environmental Pesticide Control

The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (or FIFRA), (P.L. 75-717) 7 U.S.C. 136 et seq. is a United States federal law that set up the basic U.S. system of pesticide regulation to protect applicators, consumers and the environment. It is administered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the appropriate environmental agencies of the respective states. The current version of FIFRA underwent a major revision in 1972 and superseded the Federal Insecticide Act of 1910 and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act of 1947. The act was amended somewhat in 1996 by the Food Quality Protection Act. In 1988, it was amended again to change pesticide registration laws and to require reregistration of certain pesticides that had been registered before 1984.
