How do I find out if a pesticide is registered with EPA?

One way to find out if a pesticide has been federally approved by EPA is to look for an EPA Registration Number (sometimes written as EPA Reg. No.)  on the label.  Another way to search for the registration status of pesticides is through searching EPA's pesticide product label system.  You can search by product name, EPA registration number, or company name. 

Another source is Purdue University's National Pesticide Information Retrieval System (NPIRS).  NPIRS provides a user-friendly portal to EPA's pesticide database, which allows anyone with Internet access to search for pesticides by product name, company name, or EPA Reg. No. to name just a few.  EPA provided initial funding for NPIRS.
