If typescript labels are submitted, printer's proof, final labels or legible photocopies, thereof, must be submitted before the amended label will be accepted for use. If the amended labeling has been approved by a federal agency, proof of such approval shall be submitted with the amendment application.
(c) In lieu of submitting data pursuant to subsections (a) and (b) of this section, an applicant for registration or amendment may reference appropriate data previously submitted to the Director or a pesticide product(s) previously approved by the Director that would be subject to some or all of the same data requirements as applicable to the applicant's product.
