So what does EPA registered really mean?
All products making claims to destroy or suppress the growth of microorganisms such as mold and/or mildew on inanimate objects and surfaces must submit chemical makeup, acceptable data on product performance (effectiveness), toxicological effects, ecological effects and ecological fate to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) for approval of such claims.
All US pesticide products, including wood preservatives, are regulated by EPA and may not be sold with such claims until EPA has approved the formulations and granted an EPA Registration number which must then appear on the product label. In addition, EPA approves a final label with the recommendations for use.
All products which have been granted an EPA Registration number may not alter or change any chemical in the formulation ensuring that each batch contains the exact amount of ingredients each and every time. If such change is deemed necessary, formulas must be re-submitted to EPA for approval prior to sale.
EPA monitors EPA Registered products by random inspections of manufacturing companies as well as pulling stock from shelves and independent testing.
So what does this mean to you?
Any product with an EPA Registration Number on the front of the container, such as our TWP 100 Series and TWP 1500 Series, has been through the rigorous acceptance process with EPA and cannot be changed in any way from the original formulation submitted.
