FIFRA Overview

The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) is a complicated and often misunderstood law. Its critical importance to the food and agricultural sectors of the global economy knows no bounds, however, and the business of pesticides is central to those sectors' successes.

The FIFRA product approval process is protracted, and often challenging, for any given product. Further complicating matters are the ensuing -- often expensive -- data, recordkeeping, and advocacy requirements associated with obtaining FIFRA product approvals. The strategic planning that is critical to global product development requires a combination of skills, including legal, scientific, business, and policy experience.

The legal and scientific professionals at Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) know the law well, and know how to use it to achieve competitive advantage for their clients. B&C professionals have it all and are well-suited to assist innovators to monetize their creations and to guide new and existing registrants and follow-on registrants in these complex legal, policy, and commercial challenges.
