 Risk/Benefit Balancing Under FIFRA (EPA, 1/90)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
FIFRA requires that all pesticides intended for use in the United States be registered (licensed) by EPA to ensure that they do not cause "unreasonable adverse effects on man or the environment".
FIFRA defines unreasonable adverse effects as "any unreasonable risk to man or the environment, taking into account the economic, social, and environmental costs and benefits of the use of any pesticide." Pesticides may pose some risk because they are meant to kill or control insects, weeds, rodents, and other pests.
FIFRA authorizes EPA to conduct such full and public risk/benefit analysis of pesticides through its Special Review process or under circumstances where data show that a pesticide may pose an imminent hazard to human health or the environment.

 CRS Report RL30022: Summaries of Environmental Laws Administered by the EPA
FIFRA prohibits sale of any pesticide in the United States unless it is registered and labeled indicating approved uses and restrictions.
But the broad definition of "pesticide" in FIFRA also applies to products with less familiar "pesticidal uses." For example, substances used to control mold, mildew, algae, and other nuisance growths on equipment, in surface water, or on stored grains are pesticides.
However, Section 3 of FIFRA provides for a 10-year period of "exclusive use" by the registrant of data submitted in support of an original registration or a new use.

 New York - FIFRA Preemption evolves
Dow Chemical Co., 252 A.D 2d 31, 683 N.Y.S. 2d 619 (1998), the Third Department held that FIFRA did not preempt breach of express warranty claims that a pesticide applicator falsely represented that a pesticide application was safe for an asthmatic family.
The Third Department held that, although FIFRA preempted warnings claims against a pesticide applicator, the breach of express warranty claims here did not arise from the required label and were not preempted.
Tyler rejected Terminix's expansive reading of FIFRA preemption, which would have immunized all statements and claims pertaining to safety, even voluntary ones, as well as false statements concerning health and safety issues within the scope of the label warnings.

If EPA, consistent with current provisions of FIFRA, were now to disclose such trade-secret data or consider those data in evaluating the application of a subsequent applicant in a manner not authorized by the version of FIFRA in effect between 1972 and 1978, its actions would frustrate appellee's reasonable investment-backed expectation.
If, however, arbitration pursuant to FIFRA were to yield just compensation for the loss in the market value of appellee's trade-secret data suffered because of EPA's consideration of the data in connection with another application (no arbitration having yet occurred), then appellee would have no claim against the Government for a taking.
Prior to the 1972 amendments, FIFRA was silent with respect to EPA's authorized use and disclosure of data submitted to it in connection with an application for registration.
