Registration Background

For companies familiar with the U.S. pesticide registration process, obtaining federal approval is only the initial step. State-level registration is mandatory, with California standing out due to its significant agricultural sector and high demand for pesticides. However, California’s rigorous review process and comprehensive registration requirements present substantial challenges for enterprises.

A Guide for Pesticide Registrants, issued by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR), is comprehensive and imposes strict requirements, covering everything from types of registrations to label design. This guide not only reassesses the entire federal registration dossier but also demands additional efficacy data, making the registration process notably demanding.

Leveraging its extensive experience and resources, REACH24H has adeptly guided enterprises through these hurdles, ensuring successful registration.

Registration Experience

According to REACH24H’s experience, agrochemical companies aiming for swift and smooth California registration should consider the following:

  1. Clarify Data Requirements

California’s data requirements align with the federal system and include the state’s unique regulatory criteria. The state has set specific data requirements for various pesticides and registration types. Incomplete data submissions may result in direct rejection, making it crucial to provide comprehensive data packets during the registration process.

  1. Master Federal and State Regulations, Guidelines, and Policies

Familiarity with both federal and California-specific regulations is essential. Companies must adeptly navigate conflicting review opinions and align proposals with state expectations to expedite the process.

  1. Comply with Archiving Requirements

Currently, California only accepts paper dossiers sent by mail, and there are clear requirements from printing the paper to binding the dossiers. For dossiers that do not meet the file format requirements and cannot be archived, California may directly reject them. However, California plans to launch an online submission system in September, streamlining this process.
