This review paper provides information drawn from the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Act and Regulation that will be of particular interest to those using a pesticide for the management of noxious weeds or invasive plants1 on public land. The IPM Act was brought into force on December 31, 2004, replacing the Pesticide Control Act. The legislation sets out requirements for the use and sale of pesticides in British Columbia. This document presents a lay summary of the requirements set forth in the IPM Act and Regulation only for management of noxious weeds and invasive plants. Other review documents provide the requirements for management of noxious weeds and invasive plants in respect of forestry, railway and other industrial site pest management.
