At the core of NPIRS Public are two databases, PPIS and State Public. All information in NPIRS Public is
provided free of charge, including PPIS and State Public.
The PPIS website contains a portion of the federal pesticide product data contained in the NPIRS database. Behind the scene are all federally active products.
Products with a federal status of active are federally registered and available for use in the United States.
In order to be included in the PPIS website, a company must be the primary registrant of at least one
federally active product. Companies whose products have all been federally cancelled, do not appear here. Additionally,
distributor products are not included in PPIS.
There are four primary PPIS search options including: EPA Registration Number, Product Name, Company Name, and Active Ingredient.
