Virginia Administrative Code
Title 2. Agriculture
Agency 5. Department Of Agriculture And Consumer Services
Chapter 690. Regulations for Pesticide Containers and Containment under Authority of the Virginia Pesticide Control Act
11/30/2021

2VAC5-690-160. General provisions.

A. The purpose of the containment regulations in Part V (2VAC5-690-160 et seq.) of this chapter is to protect human health and the environment from exposure to agricultural pesticides that may spill or leak from stationary pesticide containers. This protection is achieved by the construction of secondary containment units or pads at certain facilities handling agricultural pesticides. These regulations will also reduce waste generation associated with:

1. Storage and handling of large quantities of pesticide products.

2. Pesticide dispensing and container-refilling operations.

B. Any owner or operator of one of the following businesses who also has a stationary pesticide container or a pesticide dispensing (including container refilling) area must comply with the regulations in Part V of this chapter.

1. Refilling establishments who repackage agricultural pesticides and whose principal business is retail sale (i.e., more than 50% of total annual revenue comes from retail operations).

2. Custom blenders of agricultural pesticides.

3. Businesses that apply an agricultural pesticide for compensation (other than trading of personal services between agricultural producers).
