Revised North Dakota pesticide regulations soon to take effect BISMARCK - Pesticide manu- facturers, dealers and applicators should review recent changes in North Dakota's administrative rules related to pesticide use and storage. "'Most of the revisions are in- tended to make the rules easier to un- derstand and more transparent," Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said. "Although some of the rule changes are relatively minor. others may affect the way people do business." The changes include: • Clarifying commercial certifica- tion classes • Adding military deferment pro- visions • Adding language to meet equiv- alency for federal container/contain- ment regulations • Expanding spill kit requirements to include public applicators • Exempting private pesticide users from storage signage require- ments • Adding discretionary authority for pesticide certification applica- tions • Requiring additional training for recertifying aerial applicators The pesticide administrative rules are contained in Titles 60-01,60-02, and 60-03 of the North Dakota Ad- ministrative Code (NDAC). They can be found on the Legislative Council website at www.legis.nd.gov/information/ac- data/html/title60.html.
