How do I get a tolerance for a minimum risk pesticide product if I need one?
The first step is to petition the Agency to establish a tolerance. The Agency will then announce the receipt of the petition in the Federal Register. There are fees associated with establishing tolerances (17 pp, 715 K, about PDF), but they may be waived on a case-by-case basis.
Please see the Agency's online fact sheet Setting Tolerances for Pesticide Residues in Foods for more information.
