EPA Compliance Advisory Alert: Imports of Pesticide Devices

This Compliance Advisory is to provide important information about producing, distributing, or selling pesticide devices.

The number of devices being distributed or sold in the United States (U.S.) has been increasing significantly. EPA has found substantial non-compliance with the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) in the device and pesticide marketplace. Devices are subject to statutory and regulatory requirements, and the failure to comply with applicable requirements may constitute an unlawful act. Failure to comply with FIFRA may result in a United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) hold or denial at a port of entry, the issuance of a Stop Sale, Use, or Removal Order (SSURO), seizure, and/or the assessment of civil and/or criminal penalties.
