A. Annual Summary Reports by Commercial Applicators. Annual summary reports must be submitted for each calendar year by January 31 of the following year. In the event a required report is not received by the due date, the person's license may be temporarily suspended until the proper report is received or until a decision is tendered at a formal hearing as described in 22 M.R.S.A. §1471-D(7). The report filed with the Board by or on behalf of commercial applicators shall contain the following information for each site or crop treated: quantity of each pesticide used, EPA registration number and total area treated (where applicable) for each pesticide.
B. Annual Pesticide Sales Reports. Pesticide dealers licensed to sell limited and restricted use pesticides must provide the Board with a calendar year-end report of total sales of all limited, restricted and general use pesticides before their pesticide dealer license can be renewed. The Board will furnish report forms.
C. Spray Incident Reports
I. Commercial agricultural producers, commercial applicators, spray contracting firms and licensed pesticide dealers shall be responsible for telephoning a spray incident report to the Board as soon as practicable after emergency health care has been obtained for injured parties and efforts have been initiated to contain any spills.
II. A reportable spray incident is any significant misapplication or accidental discharge of a pesticide. Such incidents shall include: fires involving pesticides; vehicle and aircraft accidents resulting in a spill or human contamination; failure to turn off spray booms or other spray equipment resulting in application to sensitive areas (such as water bodies, accidentally applying pesticides to the wrong site or places of human habitation) when such application is a violation of label instructions or other law; overfilling of spray equipment resulting in risk of contamination of water; and any other equipment breakage or malfunction or pesticide handling activity which causes a pesticide release which may result in a threat to human health or the environment.
