Dear CPDA Member,

Please see the link from EPA regarding its efforts to increase the availability of disinfectant products for use against the Coronavirus. Within EPA’s message is the following announcement of the Agency’s approval of the use of commodity inerts:

“Commodity inert ingredients are individual inert ingredients—there are approximately 280 total—that can be obtained from different producers with no significant differences in the ingredient. Applicants for pesticide registration or registration amendments can obtain commodity inert ingredients from various commercial sources without having to provide EPA with the supplier name and address. Only those inert ingredients designated as commodity inert ingredients would be eligible for this reduced Confidential Statement of Formula (CSF) reporting.”

The list of commodity inerts may be accessed at the following link
