Lydia,

Your state public health regulator should be able to help with this.

“Requirements for Records

In most states, applicators are required to keep records on both restricted- and nonrestricted-use pesticides for a set number of years. Upon request, copies must be furnished to any authorized agent at any time during the regular business hours of the applicator.

Service technicians are required to keep records of their pesticide applications, usually including time and place of each application; applicator's name; name and address of the person receiving the service; street address or other legal description of land where used; date; tank mix, dilution rate and quantity; trade name and product registration number; and target pest. It is also recommended that the applicator record the wind speed and direction and other pertinent weather or location information.

Additionally, many insecticides used for mosquito control cannot be used on crop or forage lands. Be certain that the insecticides selected for the control program are labeled for use on crops or are not used where they will contaminate crops.”

Re: Pest Control Log Retention Time Frame

Thanks, John, for the information. It makes sense for a public health regulation. Are you aware of any quality management system record retention requirement in ISO 13485 or 21 CFR part 820 that gives a timeframe for record retention of pest control logs? I haven't found anything specific. Looking for information for med device company without a cleanroom.

Lydia,

No.

Meanwhile, I suggest that set your own time limit in your filing and archiving procedure and be prepared to justify it in keeping with your other records.

But the public health considerations are likely to be the most onerous.
