2017 Overview of U.S. Pesticide Regulations Course
October 10-11, 2017
Crowell & Morning LLP
1001 Pennsylvania Ave, NW
Please join us in Washington, D.C. on October 10 – 11, 2017 for CSPA's annual Overview of Pesticide Regulation in the U.S. This comprehensive two day course continues CSPA’s popular “Survey Plus” format course. Please note that the course will be held at the offices of Crowell & Moring, LLP, 1001 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC.
Presenters will include John Conner, Michael Boucher, Peter Gray and Warren Lehrenbaum of Crowell & Mooring, LLP and Micah Reynolds, Dr. Sheryl Reilly, Melinda Bowman and Dr. Leslie Patton at Technology Sciences Group, Inc. We look forward to EPA speakers joining us.
The course focuses on the practical: what you need to know to get your pesticide products on the market, keep them on the market and avoid penalties (which EPA in January of this year increased to $18,750 per violation). We'll cover the basics -- the definition of a pesticide; the ABC's of a registration, data generation and building a label; tolerances; record keeping and reporting; preparing for an inspection and data compensation.
We'll then move to advanced topics of current interest: electronic submissions; pollinators and the Endangered Species Act; state regulation of pesticides including California and PRIA 4. Additionally, the seminar will continue three new modules that were introduced last year on “Labeling Impacts of Toxicity Study Results,” “How to Register a Biopesticide,” and “Marketing Claims for Consumer Pesticides.”
The course is intended for registration and regulatory, legal, marketing, research and development and logistics personnel from companies that produce and or distribute pesticide products. The schedule will allow ample time for you to ask questions and compare notes with industry experts and regulators.
