U.S. government extends PRIA 3

On September 8, 2017, a bill was signed that extends the third iteration of the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act (PRIA) until December 8, 2017.  PRIA was due to expire on September 30, 2017.  Originally implemented in 2004, PRIA created a registration service fee system for various applications submitted to EPA, including for pesticide registrations, amended registrations, and tolerance petitions.  Government, industry, and environmental stakeholders have been working on, and continue to work on, the Pesticide Registration Enhancement Act, a replacement for PRIA.
