The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) has recently been amended by the passage of The Federal Pesticide Act of 1978 (Public Law 95-396, passed September 30, 1978). While many aspects of the FIFRA have been amended, the changes of most immediate relevance to those interested in developing data in support of products used in the control of orchard voles are the authorities given the EPA Administrator to grant conditional registrations and to waive efficacy data requirements.
