(a) For those pesticides for which a need for control measures has been determined pursuant to subdivision (e) or (f) of Section 14023 and pursuant to provisions of this code, the director, in consultation with the agricultural commissioners, air pollution control districts, and air quality management districts in the affected counties, shall develop control measures designed to reduce emissions sufficiently so that the source will not expose the public to the levels of exposure that may cause or contribute to significant adverse health effects. If no demonstrable safe level or threshold of significant adverse health effects has been established by the director, the control measures shall be designed to adequately prevent an endangerment of public
health through the application of best practicable control techniques.
(b) Best practicable control techniques may include, but are not limited to, the following:
(3) Restrictions on use patterns or locations.
(4) Changes in application procedures.
(5) Reclassification as a restricted material.
(c) (1)The director shall follow the consultation procedures set forth in subdivision (a) and, within two years of the
determination of the need for control measures pursuant to subdivision (e) or (f) of Section 14023, shall adopt control measures to protect human health.
(2) (A)If the director is unable to adopt control measures to protect human health within two years of the determination of the need for control measures pursuant to paragraph (1), the director shall submit a report to the appropriate committees of the Legislature setting forth the reasons this requirement has not been met.
(B) The director shall update the report submitted to the appropriate committees of the Legislature pursuant to subparagraph (A) every two years until the control measures have been adopted.
(C) If the registration for the use of a particular pesticide is rescinded or if the director determines there has been a dramatic
decline in the use of a particular pesticide so that control measures for that particular pesticide are no longer needed, the director shall include this information in the report submitted to the appropriate committees of the Legislature pursuant to subparagraph (A) and the director’s obligations pursuant to paragraph (1) shall be deemed to have been met.
(d) For purposes of this section, with respect to any pesticide for which a determination of the need for control measures was made before January 1, 2014, the two-year period described in subdivision (c) shall commence on January 1, 2014.
(e) After conducting a public hearing pursuant to Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the Government Code, the director shall adopt, by regulation, control measures, including application of the best practicable control techniques enumerated in
subdivision (b) or any other best applicable control technique, for those pesticides for which a need has been determined.
