Consolidated Pesticide Enforcement Cooperative Agreements

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Purpose of this program:

To: (a) Assist States, territories and possessions of the U.S., including the District of Columbia and Indian Tribes, in developing and maintaining comprehensive pesticide programs that address all aspects of pesticide enforcement, and special pesticide initiatives; (b) sponsor cooperative surveillance, monitoring and analytical procedures; and (c) encourage regulatory activities within the States. Funding Priority: State, Territorial, and Tribal agencies participating in this cooperative agreement program receive funds to support and strengthen their pesticide compliance programs, including pesticide compliance monitoring, inspection and enforcement activities. Two specific compliance monitoring and enforcement activities have been identified as major priorities for this program: the pesticide worker protection program and pesticides used to protect public health. Other typical program activities include inspections and observations at pesticide application sites to ensure user compliance with label directions and acceptable use practices, inspections of pesticide products at producing facilities and in the retail marketplace to ensure industry compliance with registration, classification, and labeling requirements, and initiation of appropriate enforcement action when violations are detected including civil and criminal prosecution, stop sale orders, seizures, recalls and warning notices. The statutory authority for this cooperative agreement program can be found at Section 23(a) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, USC 136u.
