The Environmental Protection Agency is seeking public comment on a revised draft Pesticide Registration Notice (PRN) that proposes guidance on pesticide product brand names that may be false or misleading, either by themselves or in association with particular company names or trademarks.


EPA believes that additional guidance is needed so that registrants can better understand the circumstances under which product brand names are potentially false or misleading and what kinds of corrective actions are needed for registered products already bearing such brand names.


For example, one significant issue that continues to arise has been product brand names that involve safety-related claims such as "safe" or "natural," and may often include specific statements, claims, logos, pictures or other aspects of the label.
