Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, Rodenticide Act

Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, Rodenticide Act (17 min.) The Federal government first regulated pesticides when Congress passed the Insecticide Act of 1910. This law was intended to protect farmers from adulterated or misbranded products. Congress broadened the federal government's control of pesticides by passing the original Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) of 1947. FIFRA required the Department of Agriculture to register all pesticides prior to their introduction in interstate commerce. A 1964 amendment authorized the Secretary of Agriculture to refuse registration to pesticides that were unsafe or ineffective and to remove them from the market. In 1970, Congress transferred the administration of FIFRA to the newly created Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This new policy focus was expanded by the passage of the Federal Environmental Pesticide Control Act of 1972 (FEPCA) which amended FIFRA by specifying methods and standards of control in greater detail.
