PPIS Data Dictionary
The Pesticide Product Information System (PPIS) contains information concerning all Pesticide products
registered in the United States. It includes registrant name and address, chemical ingredients, toxicity
category, product names, distributor brand names, site/pest uses, pesticide type, formulation code, and
registration status.
The PPIS master file currently resides on an Oracle server located in Crystal City, Virginia. The files
located in this download area are extracts of the Oracle files, and are presented in text file format to
enable interested parties to access them using a variety of database and spreadsheet software.
These files are being made available to the public to enable interested parties to download all or any part
of the pesticide product information, and develop customized queries and reports. Organizations often
request that the Office of Pesticide Programs provide copies of these files in slightly different formats,
requiring OPP staff to perform time consuming special retrievals. By presenting these files in a standard
format, OPP is providing the same information in the same format to all interested parties.
The following file descriptions contain file structures, including the column names, column descriptions,
column date types, and formats and lengths of the data, arranged alphabetically by file name. There are
four sections listed below and each section addresses a specific type of registration or process
