Other Pesticide-Related Laws & Regulations

Other pesticide-related laws and regulations are not under the authority of the Office of Pesticide Services, but may have an impact on pesticide applicators and pesticide businesses. Some of those laws and regulations include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Pesticide Notification Requirements
    While there are no pesticide notification requirements in either the Pesticide Control Act or the various regulations promulgated under the act, other Virginia laws have pesticide notification requirements related to multi-family or multi-unit dwellings. Specifically, pesticide notification is required under the Condominium Act (§ 55.1-1957 of the Code of Virginia), Virginia Real Estate Cooperative Act (§ 55.1 -2139), the Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (§ 55-.1-1223) and the Property Owners Association Act (§ 55.1-1818). These laws are not administered by OPS. Issues or concerns related to notification requirements prior to the application of pesticides should be addressed with the property owners’ association or the management company responsible for the common areas where the application will occur. When in doubt, consider seeking qualified legal advice.
