Pesticide Producing Establishment - Contact Information




The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) requires that production of pesticides and pesticidal devices be conducted in a registered Pesticide Producing Establishment.

Companies that produce pesticides, pesticide active ingredients or pesticidal devices, including companies that import these items into the United States, must register as a pesticide producing establishment and file production reports with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


The FIFRA definition of "production" includes formulation, packaging, repackaging and relabeling of any pesticide product or device.

Production in an unregistered establishment is a violation of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).

For pesticide producers located in Indiana, establishment registration is conducted through the EPA regional office in Chicago. The EPA regional office issues pesticide producing establishment numbers for each facility where pesticides or pesticide devices are produced. Questions about establishment registration or production reporting should be directed via e-mail to Reg5PesticideReportsContact@epa.gov or by phone to 312-886-0270. For cancellation of establishment registration or changes to company information, it is preferable that you submit your request in writing by Certified Mail to:
