Implementing New U.S. EPA Label Regulations

As the landscape of agriculture evolves, so do the needs of our customers and users of agrotechnology. At AgriThority® we understand the changing demographic trends and the importance of effective communication regarding pesticide use and hazards. That’s why we are here to assist you in complying with the future requirements of bilingual pesticide labeling.

With the recent passage of the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2022 (PRIA 5), it is crucial for registrants to be prepared for the upcoming changes. Our team has been engaged in EPA discussions on the rollout of bilingual labels, and we have the expertise to guide you through the process of making your pesticide labels accessible to farmworkers who predominantly speak Spanish in the USA.

Another interesting aspect of the rollout is the need for communication through 21st-century methods.

“PRIA 5 requires that the Spanish language translation for sections of the end-use pesticide product labels… must appear on the pesticide product container or a link to such translation via scannable technology or other electronic methods readily accessible on the product label. These translations are required on a rolling schedule from December 2025 to December 2030 depending on the type of pesticide product and the toxicity category.”

Our comprehensive services are designed to ensure compliance with the new regulations while addressing the unique needs of your business. Here’s how we can help:

  • Compliance Consulting: We provide in-depth consultations to help you understand specific labelling requirements. Our experts will develop tailored strategies to achieve compliance and keep you ahead of the adoption curve. We stay up to date with the latest regulations to ensure that you are well-informed and prepared for the future.
  • Translation Services: Accurate and culturally sensitive translations are key to effective bilingual pesticide labeling. Our global team works to ensure that all key health and safety sections are accurately translated into Spanish. We understand the importance of conveying the right information to farmworkers in their native language.
  • Technology Integration: Customer demographics are changing, but we can also assist you in implementing bilingual labels that will be robust with new application methods and increasing internet connectivity.

For the U.S. market, it is not enough to print instructions on a bottle and expect results. Plan to reach out to all players in the farming system to effectively communicate benefits and hazards of your technology. We can help you develop comprehensive outreach strategies to effectively share health and safety information. By collaborating with relevant entities such as grower groups, universities, and distributors, you can ensure that the right information reaches the farmworker community in a timely manner. This is the ultimate goal of the new EPA regulations to ensure proper use of EPA regulated products.
