Pesticide Dealer Business
Online reports are available over the internet
through the Online Reports portal where one can search the PCP licensing
database for information on dealer businesses (companies that
sell restricted-use pesticides). You can search by the business
license number or by the business name. You can also search
for such businesses by the county they are located in. That
report would be useful to locate pesticide dealers in your area.
Information about Pesticide
Dealer Business Licensing
Beginning in 1983, the NJ Pesticide Control
Regulations required that: No person shall cause, suffer, allow
or permit the operation of a business which distributes federal
or New Jersey restricted-use pesticides to end users in New
Jersey, without that business being licensed as a Pesticide
Dealer Business with the NJ Pesticide Control Program (PCP).
A Pesticide Dealer Business is defined as any
person or organization which ultimately controls the transactions
conducted at, and the operations of, a pesticide dealer outlet.
In other words, if the pesticide dealer outlet authorizes the
distribution of a restricted-use pesticide to an end user, it
is a Pesticide Dealer Business. This includes any salesperson
or agent of a pesticide dealer who conducts transactions out
of a location, such as his home, which is different from the
main outlet of the business with which he is associated, if
that salesperson or agent is authorizing the distribution.
Each pesticide dealer outlet from which restricted-use
pesticides are distributed, sold or offered for sale to end
users in New Jersey must be licensed. Each name under which
a pesticide dealer outlet operates must be licensed separately.
The licensing requirement also applies to out-of-state outlets
from which restricted-use pesticides are distributed, sold or
offered for sale to New Jersey end users.
Each Pesticide Dealer Business must employ at
least one licensed Responsible Certified Pesticide Dealer who
works at that outlet. If there is a change of the Responsible
Certified Pesticide Dealer at a business location, complete
the Dealer Business/Responsible
Certified Dealer Change Form and mail to the address
indicated at the top of the form.
The Pesticide Dealer Business License must be
renewed annually. The license year is from November 1st to October
31st. Application forms will be accepted throughout the year,
however, the full license fee is required for licensing for
any part of that year.
