Yes. Once your product has been federally approved, it must then be registered and approved in each state you intend to distribute in and before distribution begins. At TSG, we will not only help you with the application process, we will also track the status in each state to allow you to quickly and efficiently get your product to market. We can also help you navigate the requirements when selling and distributing through online retailers such as Amazon or large, nationwide retailers such as Walmart.

This will depend upon the product and the states involved. Generally the process can take 6-9 months. The quality of the original submission is critical as is following the appropriate process and maintaining frequent communication with the regulator. Delays occur when forms need to be resubmitted because of incomplete or inaccurate submissions. At TSG, we pride ourselves on our ability to submit complete and accurate submissions, resulting in a smoother approval process for clients.

In certain circumstances, California allows for the submission of a registration while it is being reviewed by US EPA. This is not allowed in any other state. TSG can assist with determining when a California concurrent submission can be leveraged.
