This Department has approved your application to register the referenced
products for use in New York State as antimicrobial agents for the industrial
uses proposed on the labels. These products are classified as restricted use
The active ingredient bronopol is a new active ingredient. We reviewed all of
the information submitted in support of the registration, and have determined
that proper use of these products is not likely to result in significant
health or environmental risks.
The approved labels are the federally registered labels as submitted.
Enclosed, for your records, are the Certificate of Pesticide Registration and
a copy of the stamped-accepted labels.
Since these products are classified as restricted use pesticides, please note
that New York State Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) 33-0901.1 states
that: "A commercial permit is required for the distribution, sale, offer for
sale, purchase for the purpose of resale or possession for the purpose of
resale of a restricted use pesticide." Thus, if Betz Laboratories, Inc.,
proposes to sell or offer for sale any restricted use pesticide to any person
within New York State, commercial permit is required. ECL 33-0905.1 further
states that: "Any person who enqaqes in. . . the sale of restricted use
pesticides shall be certified by the commissioner. . ." Therefore, commercial
permit holders must employ or retain under contract at least one person who is
certified in New York State for the application of restricted use pesticides.
Also enclosed is information pertaining to commercial permits in New York
State, along with an application form for your convenience. Questions
regarding commercial permits and certification should be directed to our
