Title: Restoration of Inadvertently Removed Exemption From the Requirements of FIFRA 
Abstract:

In 2001, EPA inadvertently removed an exemption from the requirements of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). EPA is considering a petition to restore the exemption established in a final rule published on November 5, 1979 (44 FR 63749) that codified an exemption from the requirements of FIFRA for pesticide products offered solely for human use, that are also a new drug within the meaning of section 201(p) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) or an article that has been determined not to be a new drug by a regulation establishing conditions of use for the article. EPA is considering options to partially restore the exemption, particularly regarding pediculicide products.
