Note: This information is provided for reference purposes only. Although the information provided here was accurate and current when first created, it is now outdated.


Pesticides are now being sold legally and illegally over the internet through a variety of consumer websites, such as company-owned websites, shopping portals, auction websites, and by private individuals who have their own websites. EPA is now in the process of identifying the type of sales that pose risk concerns, and the extent to which FIFRA violations are occurring. EPA is working with Association of American Pesticide Control Official's (AAPCO) IT Committee to scope out the extent of e-commerce problems and considering appropriate solutions for managing these problems over the short- and long-term.
