Label Submission Requirements:

OISC no longer accepts paper labels. Labeling should be submitted to the office either by e-mail (pestproducts@groups.purdue.edu) or through ALSTAR.


All elements of the container labels must be submitted as one PDF file. This means that if the labeling includes a portion of the label that is adhered to the container and a booklet, this must all be combined in one PDF file. This also applies for devices where the labeling on the box, directions for use (owner’s manuals), and any labeling on the physical device must all be in one PDF file.


Labels must be text-searchable and free of printer proof markings.


Revised Label Submission Requirements:

Revised labels follow the directions above for Label Submission Requirements. In addition, if the labels are submitted via email, the PDF document must be named to match the 10-digit IN REG Number of the product. This number is the first column on the renewal listing.

Revised labels must also be accompanied by a list of changes and/or revisions.


What Requires Separate Registration:

According to IC 15-16-4-56: "For more than one (1) pesticide product to be considered the same pesticide product, each pesticide product must exhibit the same: (1) product name; (2) registrant name; (3) United States Environmental Protection Agency registration number; (4) labeling, claims, and branding; and (5) ingredient statement."

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Product Registration - (02/25/22)

Within our Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Pesticide Product Registration Document (pdf, 202kb), you will find additional information on special registrations (24(c), Section 18 and EUPs). You will also find examples of what requires registration as a device in Indiana, what is considered a different product and requires separate registration, how to submit labels, and renewal details.




New Applications:

Below you will find the requirements for each application. If, upon initial review, an application is missing required documents, the labeling is not submitted appropriately or the labeling requires revisions, OISC will provide a 30-day deadline to submit additional documents or corrections. If not submitted within that timeframe, OISC may propose to deny the application.

The $170.00 Indiana registration application fee is non-refundable.

All registrations expire and must be renewed by December 31 of each year.

Checks should be made payable to: INDIANA STATE CHEMIST. At this time, OISC cannot accept credit card payments and we do not have the ability to receive renewals or new registrations through our State Database.
