Office of General Counsel Program Policies

The Office of General Counsel (OGC) originates Program Policies in order to provide guidance to Department staff and the public on specific procedures and reporting requirements that are associated with law and regulation. Presently, the procedures found in OGC Program Policies help guide Department staff when Department staff and/or the public assists with regulated entities in complying with pesticide record keeping and reporting requirements (OGC 3 and 4), give guidance as to how and when Department staff may enter property for the purpose of carrying out their official duties (OGC 7), provide a consistent approach to address violations of the New York State's solid waste laws and regulations (OGC 8) and provide enforcement guidance to the public rights of navigation and fishing (OGC 9).
