Pesticide registration is a highly technical task involving evaluating the pesticide efficacy, chemistry and human and environmental risks associated with them. This ensures that pesticides used in the country are safe and efficacious. Registration involves the approval of a pesticide for distribution and uses in the country if dossier information meets the set standards with respect to efficacy, human and animal health and the environment. The Board publishes a list of registered pesticides on a bi-annual basis.

The Board licenses all manufacturing, sales, storage, and commercial pesticide applicators including pesticide disposal operators to ensure sanity in the pesticides industry. It also regulates the import and export of pesticides through the issuance of permits.
