When the pesticide product is usually removed from the shipping container before being distributed or sold to the retail buyer, the shipping container is not required to carry the full product label. If the shipping container is the unit usually distributed or sold to the retail buyer, the shipping container must carry the complete label of the product. Even if the shipping container is not required to carry the full product label, all mentions on the shipping container are labelled and a false or misleading marking would be contrary to FIFRA. While the regulations do not provide for specific markings for ship containers, the Agency recommends that the container be provided with sufficient information to allow emergency personnel to identify the material contained in the container in the event of an accident or spill. Note that dot requirements may require identification of the shipping container based on the characteristics of the material shipped.

No. 1). The box in which the aerosol box is placed must bear the operating number of the facility in which the reconditioning took place (est.
No. 2). Both operating numbers can be displayed because they can be easily associated with different stages of product packaging. Please also note that if the full aerosol label cannot be read through the outer packaging, the complete product label must be on the outer packaging. 40 CFR 152.25 (a) provides an exemption from registration requirements for qualifiedly treated items or substances. The derogation states that “the object or substance treated or containing a pesticide or pesticide (for example. B paint treated with a pesticide to protect the coating of paint or wood products treated to protect the wood from insect or mushroom infestations) is excluded if the pesticide is allowed for such use.” Formaldehyde used to treat dairy cattle hooves to control microorganisms is not considered a pesticide and does not require EPA registration. FIFRA defines “harmful organisms” to exclude “viruses, bacteria or other microorganisms on or in living humans or other living animals.” FIFRA Sec.
