The Association of American Pesticide Control Officials was formed in 1947, the same year that Congress enacted the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
Members of AAPCO consist of the officers charged by law with the execution of the state, territorial, provincial, and federal laws in the United States, including all its territories, and in Canada.
AAPCO oversees the State FIFRA Issues Research and Evaluation Group (SFIREG). SFIREG and it’s working committees provide a platform for the states and EPA to resolve challenges to successful implementation of pesticide programs and policies in the USA and territories. AAPCO supports related associations who specialize in particular aspects of the pesticide programs, by working collaboratively with them to promote consistency across different pesticide program areas at the national level.
