Under Section 18 of FIFRA, WSDA can apply for an emergency exemption from federal registration in order to allow the use of an unregistered pesticide in an emergency situation. An emergency situation must be urgent and non-routine and could include: an outbreak of a new pest, development of resistance to existing pesticides, unusual weather conditions that caused a pest outbreak, or product cancellation. There is no fee to apply for an emergency exemption.
