Glossary

(From ECL and 6NYCRR Parts 325 and 326)

"Business registration" means the requirement of each person or business providing services of commercial application of pesticides, either entirely or as a part of the business, to register with the department.

"Commercial application" means any application of any pesticide except as defined in private or residential application of pesticides.

"Commercial applicator" means a certified applicator (whether or not a private applicator with respect to some uses) who uses or supervises the use of any pesticide for any purpose on any property other than as provided by the definition of "private applicator".

"Commercial permit" means the permit issued by the commissioner, pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law, section 33-0901, for the distribution, sale, offer for sale, purchase for the purpose of resale, or possession for the purpose of resale, of a restricted pesticide.

"General use pesticide" means a pesticide which does not meet the state criteria for a restricted pesticide as established under authority of section 33-0303 of this article.

"Pesticide" means:

a. Any substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest; and

b. Any substance or mixture of substances intended for use as a plant regulator, defoliant or desiccant.

"Private application" means any application of any pesticide for the purpose of producing an agricultural commodity.

a. On property owned or rented by the applicator or the applicator's employer, or

b. If applied without compensation other than the barter of personal services between producers of agricultural commodities, on property owned or rented by a party to such a barter transaction.

"Restricted use pesticide" means a pesticide, as defined in this article and determined as provided in Section 33-0303:

a. Which (1) either (a) persists in the environment, or (b) accumulates as either the pesticide per se, a pesticide metabolite, or a pesticide degradation product in plant or animal tissue or product and is not excreted or eliminated within a reasonable period of time and which may be transferred to the forms of life; and (2) which by virtue of such persistence or accumulation creates a present or future risk of harmful effects on any organism other than the target organisms: or

b. Which the commissioner finds is so hazardous to man or other forms of life that restrictions on its sale, purchase, use or possession are in the public interest.
