This manual provides guidance to inspectors conducting pesticide inspections under the authority of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). It includes recommended procedures and forms for federal inspections. Inspections are conducted in five phases: (1) inspection preparation; (2) entry and opening conference; (3) observations and evidence collection; (4) receipt for samples/statement(s), and closing conference; and (5) inspection reporting. Conducting all inspections in this manner will ensure that the inspector fulfills the statutory requirements for conducting inspections authorized under Sections 8 and 9 of FIFRA. EPA has developed forms for use during inspections that will assist the inspector in completing all phases.
