This Article discusses international regulation of the sale and use of pesticides. It examines and compares national, regional, and international models as a means of achieving effective international regulation. For the national model, this article selected the United States because it was the first country to impose national restrictions on the export of pesticides. For the regional model, this article selected the European Economic Community because it has sovereign powers, and has been a market-driven entity. For the international model, this article selected the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization because it has the most far-reaching code on the regulation of pesticides. The Article then compares these national, regional, and international models and offers recommendations on the development of international regulation of the sale and use of pesticides.
