EPA Maintenance Fees & Establishment Reports for 2020
As we’ve entered the new year, please take note of the following reminders from the EPA about the new 2020 Maintenance fees as well as information on the submission of production reports to maintain an active status with the Agency.
To stay up-to-date, maintenance fees for all pesticide registrations must be paid on or before Wednesday, January 15th, 2020. It is imperative that the fees are paid before then, or The Agency will cancel your pesticide product registration. The fees vary from year to year and depend on the number of products, but for 2020 the fee is $4,000. Mailers have already been sent from the EPA to affected applicants with an announcement of the 2020 fees. For more information please use this link here.
Even if your company did not produce any pesticides in the 2019 calendar year, if you wish to maintain your active registration status with the EPA an establishment report must be submitted by Sunday, March 1, 2020. Failure to report results in enforcement action from the EPA (i.e. termination of establishment registration). For any questions regarding your establishment, the EPA asks you to contact your Regional Pesticide Establishment Coordinator as a resource. For more information on establishment reporting from the EPA use this link here. Establishments can be reported electronically or via the paper form found here.
How can TSG help?
If you have a pesticide product registered by the EPA and you want to continue to support that registration you must pay the annual maintenance fee, even if you do not intend to sell any product in the U.S. in 2020. If your company owns and operates a foreign or domestic pesticide or a device producing establishment then you must submit a production report for 2019, even if no production took place during that calendar year. TSG can provide regulatory assistance with the filing of both your 2020 maintenance fees and 2019 establishment reports. We are registered with the Central Data Exchange should you want to file your establishment reports electronically.
