Meeting the agricultural demands of the ever increasing Indian population needs continued innovation.Agriculture is the backbone of India and its economy. A good agricultural yield depends on various factors including seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. Pesticides are chemicals used to destroy, suppress or repel any unwanted plants or animals, particularly those hindering the optimum yield of the end product. Pesticides can be divided into several subcategories including fungicides, bactericides, rodenticides, herbicides and insecticides.
In India, the use of pesticides is regulated by the CIBRC and the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). Any individual or organization intending to manufacture, import or export pesticides should register their product with CIBRC. The CIBRC then analyses the product for potential risk to human and animal health, its environmental impact and usefulness in agriculture. The use of pesticides is mainly governed by the Insecticides Act, 1968, and Insecticides Rules, 1971. The maximum residue limits of registered pesticides are determined by FSSAI. Products treated with pesticides during cultivation or storage may contain their residues, which are eventually consumed by humans. FSSAI’s role is to carefully assess that these residue limits do not exceed those acceptable for human consumption.
The CIBRC has set guidelines for pesticides sale in the country. Any individual or company, intending to either manufacture or import any type of pesticides to India, needs to submit an application for the registration of their product to CIBRC.
The submission of this application involves several technicalities. The application is to be done to the registration committee. Details regarding the active ingredients need to be specified. After receiving the application, along with the recommended fee, the committee conducts chemical, physical and microscopic tests and enquiries to confirm the claims made by the manufacturer or importer as far as the utility of the pesticide is concerned.
If the application is found to be valid,a registration number is allocated and a certificate of registration is then made available within a period of 12 months.
Our team of experts can provide you complete guidance in this matter, thus making your registration process hassle free.

There are a gamut of registrations to be filled out for formulations. The exact ingredients of the formulations, their quantities, their source, physical and chemical properties, details about the manufacturing process, toxicity details all need to be mentioned in great detail in the forms to obtain approval. These forms need to fill for not just new formulations, but for extension of their shelf life, addition of a new ingredient, etc.

We can help simplifying this tedious process for you. Our step-by-step support and expert advice is something that you can count on.
As per the Registration committee meeting held in 2012, a permission is needed to import for purpose of Research, Test and Trial (RTT). A completed Form C, technical bulletin from inventor, detailed information of chemistry, bio efficacy and toxicity needs to be provided to obtain the permit. CliniExperts team ensures rapid clearance of licenses by assisting in thorough document compilation in the very first go.
It is imperative to obtain the due Import permit for importing insecticides that are not intended to be used as insecticides. A stock register needs to be maintained by the manufacturer or importer in Form XV for all technical grade insecticides, and Form XVI for all formulation based insecticides. The permit can be obtained only after the registration committee does its analysis and gives a green signal.
Due application needs to be made for extending the already mentioned shelf life on pesticides and insecticides in sale. Practical and documentary proof needs to be provided to the registration committee explaining why the shelf life can be increased.
