Special Pesticide Registrations
All pesticides used in Wisconsin must be registered with the federal Environmental Protection Agency according to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act. This national law governs the sale and use of pesticides. However, the federal government realized there would be times when a state would need to quickly register a pesticide in order to respond to a special local need such as an insect or disease outbreak or emergency.
These special pesticide registrations are covered under the federal register in FIFRA's sections 18 and 24C. Section 94.69(1), Wisconsin Statutes, authorizes the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection to adopt rules on the registrations of pesticides to meet special local needs as authorized by FIFRA and to impose fees to cover the cost of the registration. Section ATCP 29.72, Wisconsin Administrative Code, states the procedures used by the department in its special local needs registration activities.
