“Special local need” means an existing or imminent pest problem within Hawaii for which an appropriate federally registered pesticide product is not sufficiently available.

Registration under the authority of FIFRA Section 24(c), also known as Special Local Needs (SLN) registration, provides for additional uses of federally registered pesticides for use within a specific state. Using this authority, the State of Hawaii may register a new end use product or an additional use of a federally registered pesticide product, provided that certain conditions are met.

Those who request an SLN registration must work with the pesticide manufacturer/registrant to draft up the intended SLN labeling to meet their specific pest management needs. Requesters must also provide letters of support for the pursuit of the SLN for the product. The registrant will then submit the proposed SLN labeling, along with any other required and supporting documents, to [email protected]

Submissions by the registrant must be sent at least six months before the intended use date or expiration date of a current SLN registration.
