Pesticide
Laws & Regulations
   
There are two state pesticide laws in Indiana. These are the Indiana Pesticide Registration Law (IC 15-16-4) and the Indiana Pesticide Use and Application Law (IC 15-16-5). In addition, there are a number of rules that have been developed under those two laws to further define regulatory requirements.

Following is a Table of Contents for each of those laws and rules.  You can view the law and rule documents by clicking on the title of each law or rule.
