Pesticide Registration

OECD Data Evaluation Record Templates

As part of a cooperative NAFTA project, EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) and the Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) Exit developed standard data evaluation formats, or templates. The templates have been in use by these agencies since 2002 for writing their data evaluation records (DERs) of studies submitted under the U.S. data requirements for pesticide registration (40 CFR, Part 158) and the Canadian data codes (DACOs). The DER that the agencies prepare contains a study profile documenting basic study information such as materials, methods, results, applicant’s conclusions and the evaluator's conclusions.

For more information on leveraging OECD DER templates, OPP’s Biopesticides and Pollution Prevention Division (BPPD) has created a presentation that demonstrates the use of the OECD DER templates.
