Adjuvant Certification Program
The CPDA voluntary Certification Program is the first of its kind. Since its launch in 2001, it is quickly gaining industry recognition as an innovative tool for encouraging product stewardship in the manufacture of agricultural adjuvants. Prior to the CPDA Certification Program, end users had little, if any, scientifically accepted standards by which they could effectively judge the quality of an adjuvant. Members of the CPDA Adjuvants and Inerts Committee (AIC) developed the program to bring a level of consistency in product performance for adjuvants used in agricultural pesticide formulations. Products that receive certification under the program must meet 17 separate benchmarks that are based on the technologically and scientifically derived definitions and standards adopted by the American Society for Testing and Materials, now known as ASTM International. Agricultural spray adjuvants are not subject to federal regulation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To learn more about the CPDA program, follow the links below.
