40 CFR 158.220 - Experimental use permit data requirements for product performance.
All product performance data, as described in paragraph (c) of this section, must be submitted to support a request for an experimental use permit.
(a) Use patterns.
(1) The terrestrial use pattern includes products classified under the general use patterns of terrestrial food crop and terrestrial nonfood crop. The aquatic use pattern includes products classified under the general use patterns of aquatic food crop and aquatic nonfood crop. The greenhouse use pattern includes products classified under the general use patterns of greenhouse food crop and greenhouse nonfood crop. The indoor use pattern includes products classified under the general use patterns of indoor food and indoor nonfood use.
(2) Data are also required for forestry and residential outdoor uses.
(b) Key. CR = Conditionally required; NR = Not required; R = Required; MP = Manufacturing-use product; EP = End-use product; TEP = Typical end-use product.
(c) Table. The following table shows the experimental use data requirements for product performance. The test notes are shown in paragraph (d) of this section.

(d) Test notes. The following test notes apply to the data requirements in the table to paragraph (c) of this section.
1. The Agency has waived the requirement to submit efficacy data unless the pesticide product bears a claim to control pest microorganisms that pose a threat to human health and whose presence cannot readily be observed by the user including, but not limited to, microorganisms infectious to man in any area of the inanimate environment, or a claim to control vertebrates (such as rodents, birds, bats, canids, and skunks) that may directly or indirectly transmit diseases to humans. However each registrant must ensure through testing that his product is efficacious when used in accordance with label directions and commonly accepted pest control practices. The Agency reserves the right to require, on a case-by-case basis, submission of efficacy data for any pesticide product registered or proposed for registration.
