FQPA Pesticide Database

The Food Quality Protection Act requires that the Environmental Protection Agency take into account cumulative exposure to pesticides from all sources. in accordance with this, the EPA is in the process of reassessing tolerances for a number of pesticides. This process will take a number of years to complete. The first pesticides to be assessed will be the organophosphates, carbamates, and pesticides thought to be cancer-causing agents (B1 and B2 carcinogens).

Search our FQPA database:

This database allows you to search by a widely-used pesticide trade name and receive the name of the active ingredient. You can also do the reverse: enter an active ingredient name and receive a list of common trade names. The database contains pesticide active ingredients that are of special interest in the FQPA process.
