         (7) A statement that the pesticide is intended for experimental use only;

         (C) The name and address of the applicant for the permit;

         (D) The name or designation of the formulation; and

         (E) If the pesticide is to be sold to experimental use program participants, a statement of the names and percentages of the principal active ingredients in the product; provided that, if the shipper submits a copy of a valid experimental use permit issued under the provisions of FIFRA, and the accepted labeling related thereto, at the head's discretion, the head may exempt the shipper from the requirement of submitting a part of the application, the data, and information specified in this subsection; and
