Domestic and Non-Domestic Pesticide Vendor Business Licence

Companies that sell pesticides must have a pesticide vendor business licence. Two types of licences are available, depending on the class of pesticide sold:

  • Domestic vendor business licence is required if the store sells or supplies a controlled purchase domestic pesticide (i.e. those that need to be kept behind the sales counter or inside a locked cabinet). 
  • Non-domestic vendor business licence is required if the store sells commercial, restricted or manufacturing class pesticides. 

What are the requirements?

To obtain a Domestic or Non-Domestic Vendor Business Licence, your business must:

Domestic Vendor

  • employ at least one person with a domestic pesticide vendor certificate;  
  • provide an estimate of the maximum size of all indoor and outdoor display areas and storage facilities for controlled purchase domestic pesticides; and
  • submit a completed Domestic Pesticide Vendor Business Licence Application Form.
