In 1996, the EPA exempted certain minimum risk pesticides from FIFRA registration if they satisfied specific conditions. To quality for an exemption as minimum risk, each active ingredient in the product must be listed in 40 CFR 152.25(f)(1). In addition, 40 CFR 152.25(f)(2) provides that these products may only contain minimal risk inert ingredients listed in the most current List 4A.
