State Pesticide Regulation

In the United States, state governments play an important role in regulating pesticides. They may develop their own regulations that are stricter than the EPA's federal pesticide regulations. This is done by each state’s pesticide regulatory office. They are often part of the State Department of Agriculture, but may be part of other state offices such as the Department of Environmental Protection.

State pesticide offices can have many different responsibilities. They work closely with EPA and other federal agencies to enforce pesticide laws.

Consider contacting your state's pesticide regulatory office for information on the following topics:

If you have questions about specific regulations in your state, consider contacting your state pesticide regulatory agency, call NPIC at 1-800-858-7378 (8:00am - 12:00pm PST), or email us at npic@ace.orst.edu.
