Weed Science Societies Urge Congress to Pass the 5th Reauthorization of the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act (PRIA 5)

PRIA 5 Support Letter PRIA established a new section of FIFRA in 2004 that put in place pesticide registration service fees paid by registrants in exchange for specific time periods for EPA to make a regulatory decision on pesticide registrations and tolerance actions. The goal of PRIA was to create a more predictable and effective evaluation system that promoted shorter decision review periods for reduced-risk applications. PRIA’s enactment spurred process improvements and provided the pesticide industry, user groups, and interested stakeholders with more clarity and certainty on the registration process
