National Pesticide Information Retrieval System (NPIRS)
Entry ID: EPA0165


Summary
Abstract: The "National Pesticide Information Retrieval System (NPRIS)" is
a subscription database of the Center for Environmental and
Regulatory Systems (CERIS). It provides information to
subscribers only on current and historical pesticides products
which have been registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (USEPA).

The information contained in the NPRIS includes the following:

Over 29,000 active products and over 60,000 cancelled and
transferred product registration; lists of the allowable
residues of pesticides in raw agricultural commodities,
processed food, and animal feed, fact sheets; index of citations
of studies submitted to the USEPA in support of pesticide
registrations; registrants; Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)
from chemical manufacturers of pesticides used in agricultural
and ornamental pest management. The information is updated on a
weekly or monthly basis. A chemical ingredient dictionary; site
dictionary; pest dictionary; and a USEPA company registrant name
and address file are also accessible.
