U.S. Pesticide State Registration

Obtaining state registrations is an essential component needed to bring a pesticide product to market in the United States. Once a federal pesticide registration is issued, registration must be obtained from every state and territory where the product will be distributed and sold. For certain states, products manufactured in the state must also be registered. Ensuring that federal and state registrations are coordinated with manufacturing, distribution and use deadlines is critical to meeting product launch and sales dates.

TSG’s regulatory specialists have extensive experience working with state programs, which provides a substantial advantage in guiding companies through the registration and compliance requirements specific to each of the 50 states, District of Columbia and U.S. territories. Our in-depth knowledge of each state and territory’s regulatory requirements enables us to deliver comprehensive services for both basic and distributor product registrations for antimicrobial, biopesticide and conventional chemical pesticides, as well as minimum risk
25(b) products, pesticide devices and adjuvants.

We routinely submit applications for new products, supplemental distributors, new active ingredients, major new use and
California concurrent submissions. Our regulatory and scientific experts are highly skilled in all aspects of the state registration process, and strong working relationships with government officials help provide quick, effective and reliable service.
Once state registrations are obtained, the product registration must be maintained in each state a company wants to market and sell its product. This requires companies to comply with each state’s regulatory requirements every time renewals are due. Furthermore, if any federal registration activity occurs, such as label amendments or notifications, updates may be required at the state level to maintain compliance. 

TSG’s state regulatory specialists routinely submit renewal documents to maintain state registrations, provide companies with complete records of renewal submission and certificates from states, act as a liaison with state regulators, and update labels for each state, including electronic submissions.

Our regulatory consultants have extensive knowledge of each state’s renewal requirements. This allows us to provide high quality services at a cost-competitive price, and our strong working relationships with state agencies ensure a smooth and efficient process during each renewal period.

In addition, we provide continued assistance with state regulatory issues such as
product defense, label amendments, data call-ins and volatile organic compound (VOC) compliance to ensure that state pesticide registrations are maintained.
