Food Quality Protection Act of 1996

Publication Date Apr 15, 2003


No prior legislation has had as profound an effect on pesticide regulation as has the Food Quality Protection Act of 1996 (FQPA). Created as an amendment to both the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, the implementation of FQPA initiated many improvements in the processes of pesticide regulation. For instance, the FQPA has helped ensure that the public is more protected from potential risks from pesticide exposure than was ensured by previous legislation. Risk-assessment science and methodologies, in particular, have advanced significantly since the passage of the FQPA. Therefore, the public is assured that the food supply of this nation will be safer as a result of the FQPA and that the nation's infants and children are better protected because of this important legislation.
