Dear Ms. Loft:
Re: Incomplete Application to Register One New Pesticide Product Containing the Active
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) received your
application on January 8, 2002, for the registration of Spectracide Triazicide Brand Soil
& Turf Insect Killer Concentrate (EPA Reg. No. 9688-183-8845) in New York State. The application
was submitted as a "routine" initial registration of a pesticide product. However, this
product is labeled for homeowner use as a soil and turf insect killer concentrate with
additional use on vegetables. New York State has not registered a product which contains
the active ingredient lambda-cyhalothrin with this homeowner use. This change in use pattern
for household use is considered a major change in labeled use pattern in New York State.
According to 6 NYCRR 326.15(a)(2), (b) and 326.17, applications for pesticide product
registrations containing a major change in labeling must be clearly identified as such
and must contain additional information. Therefore, your application for registration of
Spectracide Triazicide Brand Soil & Turf Insect Killer Concentrate (EPA Reg. No. 9688-183-8845)
The documents necessary to support registration of a major change in labeling are specified
in the "New York State Pesticide Product Registration Procedures Manual" dated August 1996,
Appendix 1; section B. A copy of this document is available at the Department's website at:
The above-mentioned information will be necessary to continue the review of the
above-referenced application package. Spectrum Group, Div. of United Industries Corporation
must submit the required information to this office within 45 calendar days of receipt of
this letter. Failure to submit the requested information within the designated time frame
will result in the termination of the review process.
Please note that if you wish to reapply for registration after the specified 45-day deadline,
you must submit the requested information along with new application forms and fees.
Please be aware that any unregistered product may not be sold, offered for sale, distributed,
or used in New York State.
Please call Cyndi Crowley, of my staff, at (518) 402-8768, if you have any questions.
