Minimum Risk Pesticides

What are Minimum Risk Pesticides?

The US EPA determines a product to be a Minimum Risk Pesticide, (MRP), when the risk to the public and the environment is sufficiently low as to not require all the data and review necessary for registration. Such products include the original 31 substances designated as allowable active ingredients in MRPs, under section 25(b) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) Conditions for Minimum Risk Pesticides.
