IR-4 Minor Use Instructions for Biopesticide Regulatory Assistance and Regulatory Assistance Request Form
IR-4 provides assistance in navigating the EPA registration process for public sector researchers and some small businesses. This only applies to new active ingredients. In order for IR-4 to consider a project we need a public sector scientist or grower representative that is familiar with the product submit a request.
The request consists of 3 parts:
1) Complete the form below
2) Write a letter explaining why the product is needed and why it is in the public interest for IR-4 to assist in the registration process
3) Supply efficacy data showing activity on the pest that needs to be controlled
Generally after a completed package is received it will take 2-4 weeks in order for the request to be reviewed.
If you submit incorrect information or need to modify your request, please contact IR-4 personnelMichael Braverman at (732) 932-9575 ext. 4610 or e-mail Michael Braverman or contact IR-4 personnel William Barney at (732) 932-9575 ext. 4603 or e-mail William Barney.
