EPA Expands List of Commodity Inert Ingredients for Pesticides

September 8, 2022

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has added 16 inert ingredients to the agency’s Commodity Inert Ingredients List.

The EPA’s additions are intended to reduce regulatory burden and increase supply chain flexibility while maintaining existing human health and environmental standards under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).

When registering or amending a pesticide product with the EPA, applicants and registrants must complete a Confidential Statement of Formula (CSF). The CSF lists all of the product’s components, including inert ingredients, and their percent by weight along with various additional information. Only designated commodity inert ingredients are eligible for reduced CSF reporting.
