Albany, NY - September 15, 2016 - The NYSDEC Bureau of Pest Management is pleased to announce that the new pesticide product registration database is now "live". The web address is here.
This pesticide search database is replacing the Product, Ingredient, and Manufacturer System (PIMS) product database that has been hosted by Cornell University since its inception. The new search database includes many added features, including site and pest searches. Additionally, updates to the product data and labeling will be reflected instantaneously. Previously, product registration data was updated approximately every two weeks.
We recommend you bookmark this site and begin using it immediately to become familiar with it as it is a little different from what you may be used to with PIMS. If you go to the PIMS site to search for a product it will simply re-direct you to the new NYSPAD site.
The Products search is only one of several searches that can be performed on the NYSPAD search page. Users can also search for pesticide applicators and businesses, restricted-use pesticide dealers, and pesticide courses and exams.
Please contact the Pesticide Product Registration Section on email or (518) 402-8768 if you have any questions or comments regarding the NYSPAD pesticide product search. For questions or comments regarding pesticide businesses, applicators, dealers, courses or exams, please contact the Reporting & Certification Section here or (518) 402-8748.
