Antimicrobial Efficacy & Claims:
What do you need for EPA Approval?
March 25, 2021, 3PM EST
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires companies to provide efficacy data for antimicrobial pesticides claiming to disinfect, sanitize, reduce, or mitigate growth or development of microbiological organisms, in addition to the expansive list of data requirements that apply to all pesticides. Selecting the appropriate efficacy tests and navigating the testing process can be a complex endeavor.
Join us on Thursday, March 25 at 3 PM EST as our Associate Scientist, Dr. Lauren Howell, discusses EPA guidelines and selection criteria for antimicrobial pesticide efficacy testing.
