California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR)

In addition to the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements on the sale of pesticides in the United States, additional requirements apply for sales on certain pesticides products at the state level. The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR) requires registration of certain pesticides sold into the state of California.

Amazon checks all pesticide products to confirm whether they are registered in the state of California according to the CDPR requirements. Pesticide products requiring registration that are not active in the CDPR database cannot be sold into California.

For details on how to register products with the CDPR, see the CDPR guide for pesticide registrants.

In addition, the state of California collects a Mill Assessment fee on the sale of registered pesticides. For sales of registered pesticides into the state of California, you may be required to pay the Mill Assessment to the CDPR. Please work with your tax or regulatory advisor or contact the CDPR directly for more information. For more details on calculating and paying the Mill Assessment, see the CDPR Mill Assessment frequently asked questions.

For more details on registration and exemptions, see the CDPR guide for pesticide registrants. For additional details on Mill Assessments, refer to the CDPR’s Mill Assessment office.
