METHYL BROMIDE FIELD FUMIGATION TRAINING SCHEDULE
On December 15, 2000, the Office of Administrative Laws (OAL) approved the methyl bromide field fumigation regulations, which are set to go into effect on January 14, 2001. As with any significant new regulatory effort, there will be a period of time before we can expect complete knowledge and full compliance within the industry. Commissioners may use reasonable enforcement discretion on a case-by-case basis during this implementation period.
The Pesticide Enforcement Branch's Regional Offices have finished developing the training package for these new regulations and plan on conducting training sessions for the county staff as follows:
San Diego Area
The training will start at 9 a.m. and will adjourn at 3 p.m.
The Department of Pesticide Regulation will not reimburse county staff for travel expenses incurred for this training.
If you have any questions, please contact the Senior Pesticide Use Specialist serving your county.
