A plant-incorporated protectant is exempt from the requirements of FIFRA, other than the requirements of § 174.71, if it meets all of the following criteria:
(a) The plant-incorporated protectant meets the criteria listed in at least one of the sections in §§ 174.25 through 174.50.
(b) When the plant-incorporated protectant is intended to be produced and used in a crop used as food, the residues of the plant-incorporated protectant are either exempted from the requirement of a tolerance under FFDCA (as amended, 21 U.S.C. 321et seq.) as codified at §§ 174.507 through 174.508, or no tolerance would otherwise be required for the plant-incorporated protectant.
(c) Any inert ingredient that is part of the plant-incorporated protectant is on the list codified at § 174.705. Plant-incorporated protectants that are not exempt from the requirements of FIFRA under this subpart are subject to all the requirements of FIFRA.
