For much of its history, the primary function of the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) has been to register and regulate pesticides, particularly chemical pesticides. In recent years, however, OPP has begun to shift from simply regulating pesticides to promoting systems of pest management that better protect health and the environment, and enhance the quality of our lives. This approach recognizes that pesticides are only one element in controlling pests and that, in some cases, non-chemical alternatives can be as effective as chemical pesticides with fewer health or environmental risks. Related to this shift in approach have been efforts to "reinvent" OPP's ways of conducting its work.

An important initiative in this area was the creation of a new division, the Biopesticides and Pollution Prevention Division, that is devoted to biologically-based pesticides and to measures that reduce pesticide risks. A major effort being spearheaded by this division is the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP), a broad effort by EPA, USDA, and FDA to work with pesticide users and others to reduce pesticide risk and use in both agricultural and non-agricultural settings.
