OCP Paying Closer Attention to Pesticides

Many licensees will be called upon, for now during their license renewals, to update their plans of record to remove unauthorized pesticides, or to update to reflect that something that could be used as a pesticide is actually being used as a cleaning agent or for some other purpose.

See additional remarks below – for a current and full list of products considered pesticides, HERE

OCP is following the definition of pesticide as defined by Title 7: Chapter 103:

25.  Pesticide.   “Pesticide” means:
A. Any substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling or mitigating any pests;   [PL 2021, c. 673, §2 (NEW).]
B. Any substance or mixture of substances intended for use as a plant regulator, defoliant or desiccant; and   [PL 2021, c. 673, §2 (NEW).]
C. Any substance or mixture of substances intended to be used as a spray adjuvant.   [PL 2021, c. 673, §2 (NEW).]

Based on this definition, OCP will be asking for updates based on intended use for products. Zero-tol and other pesticides that may be used for cleaning and not for pesticide use will be required to be listed on the facility plan but with their intended use stated. An example could be:

Pesticides/Insecticides/Fungicides: Bioworks Millstop SP

Fertilizers: Athena Pro Line, Balance, Athena Cuts

Cleaning agents: Cleanse, Sanidate, Zero-Tol
