Pesticide Registration Desk Manual

Back to Register a Product

In an effort to make the activities and business practices of the Pesticide Registration Branch as transparent as possible, the Department of Pesticide Regulation has endeavored to provide access to the materials our staff use when conducting business. We are also attempting to provide links in this manual to as many external resource materials as possible to assist with understanding of the pesticide registration process in California and at the Federal level.
