THIRD PARTY REGISTRATIONS, INC.
Third Party Registrations, Inc., a not-for-profit subsidiary of the
Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association, aids FFVA members in securing
specific registrations for crop protection
chemicals needed on minor crops. These chemicals would otherwise
not be available to growers because registrants face a limited return
and a high liability associated with use of the chemical on
Florida’s high-value-per-acre crops.
The crop protection chemicals TPR registers have labels unlike any other
in the country. Before TPR can register a chemical, it must go
through an authorization and approval process with the manufacturer,
growers involved in production of that particular commodity, the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency.
Access to TPR labels is managed through a waiver and limitations of
warranty and liability process based on Florida contract law. The
potential crop damage or non-performance liability to the basic
registrant make these products too risky for a typical labeling process.
The TPR system provides protection to the pesticide manufacturer and
distributor for this crop damage and non-performance liability in return
for the right to register the product for a particular need. All
TPR labels are Special Local Need 24(c) registrations that are specific
to and allowable for use only in Florida.
To obtain a registered 24(c) label under TPR, the grower must be an
active producer member of the Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association.
