Subject: Registrant's Mailing Address
This notice announces that the Pesticide Registration Branch mails all documents concerning pesticide product registrations to the firm (registrant) shown on the certificate of registration (license) at the firm's address on the license. Staff will continue to provide copies of correspondence regarding registration requests to a registrant's designated agent. However, licenses, registration renewal applications, notices etc. will no longer be mailed to agents. Agents may request that they be added to the mailing list for official notifications addressed to all registrants.
Occasionally, registrants request that the Pesticide Registration Branch (PRB) mail documents to more than one firm address or also to an agent's address. With current computer programs, we can accommodate only one address per registrant. Since state law makes the registrant responsible for compliance with requirements to maintain its California registrations and it is the registrant whose business is affected due to any restriction on the sale or use of its products, we consider it necessary to mail all documents to the registrant at its address.
Who is the registrant in California? The firm who registered the pesticide product with the United States Environmental Protection Agency is also the product registrant in California unless the product is supplementally distributed. When a product is supplementally distributed, PRB designates the distributor named on the United States Environmental Protection Agency's "Notice of Supplemental Distribution of a Registered Pesticide Product" as the California registrant. For products not requiring federal registration, the firm named on the product label becomes the California registrant when the product is registered. State regulations require the firm name and firm address on all applications for registration.
As indicated previously, a number of registrants designate agents to handle registration matters on their behalf. PRB's registration specialists will continue to work directly with these agents and provide them with copies of correspondence. However, the original documents will be mailed to the registrant's address.
