18B.28 EXPERIMENTAL USE PESTICIDE PRODUCT REGISTRATION.
    Subdivision 1. Requirement. A person may not use or distribute an experimental use
pesticide product in the state until it is registered with the commissioner. Experimental use
pesticide product registrations expire on December 31 of each year and may be renewed on or
before that date.
    Subd. 2. Application review and registration. (a) After reviewing the application
accompanied by the application fee, the commissioner may issue an experimental use pesticide
product registration if the commissioner determines that the applicant needs the registration to
accumulate information necessary to register a pesticide under section 18B.26. The commissioner
may prescribe terms, conditions, and a limited period of time for the experimental use product
registration. After an experimental use pesticide product registration is issued, the commissioner
may revoke or modify the registration at any time if the commissioner finds that its terms or
conditions are being violated or are inadequate to avoid unreasonable adverse effects on the
environment.
(b) The commissioner may deny issuance of an experimental use pesticide product
registration permit if the commissioner determines that issuance of a registration is not warranted
or that the use to be made of the pesticide under the proposed terms and conditions may cause
unreasonable adverse effects on the environment.
    Subd. 3. Application. A person must file an application for experimental use pesticide
product registration with the commissioner. An application to register an experimental use
pesticide product must include:
(1) the name and address of the applicant;
(2) a federal Environmental Protection Agency approval document;
(3) the purpose or objectives of the experimental use product;
(4) an accepted experimental use pesticide product label;
(5) the name, address, and telephone number of cooperators or participants in this state;
(6) the amount of material to be shipped or used in this state; and
(7) other information requested by the commissioner.
    Subd. 4. Application fee. (a) An application for registration of an experimental use pesticide
product must be accompanied by a nonrefundable application fee of $150.
(b) An additional fee of $200 must be paid by the applicant for each pesticide distributed
or used in the state before an initial experimental use pesticide product registration was issued
for the pesticide.
