An Accepted Labels State Tracking and Repository (ALSTAR) subscription is intended for companies that register pesticide products in states. The ALSTAR system is used for uploading and submitting electronic pesticide container labels and supporting documents to state registration agencies participating in the program. Product labels and supporting documents for new registrations may be uploaded to ALSTAR and submitted to states. However, registration fees and data cannot be accepted through ALSTAR. The system may not be used to renew products registered in a state or to send payment to states for renewed products.
Companies are required to subscribe to ALSTAR in order to upload electronic pesticide labels and submit them to the states taking part in ALSTAR. To subscribe, companies must have obtained an EPA Company Number , including companies that have only state-specific registrations such as FIFRA Section 25(b) exempt products or devices. Subscribers must complete the Company Subscription Application, Billing Authorization and sign the agreement to abide by the Standards for Participation.
NPIRS reserves the right to deny subscriptions to individuals or organizations that produce similar systems and/or websites that may be deemed competitors.
An ALSTAR subscription includes:
Companies with 10 or less products registered in any state are eligible to begin their ALSTAR subscription at the Tier 0 rate of $275. Each month thereafter, the number of labels uploaded to ALSTAR will be determined for each Tier 0 company. When the number exceeds 10 labels, the company will be moved to Tier 1 and billed the $1,000 tier rate difference.
Companies with more than 10 products registered in states and state regulatory agencies choosing to upgrade their participation level will begin their ALSTAR subscription at the Tier 1 rate of $1,275 for the first year of service. A company or state may upload labels for as many EPA company numbers as necessary. Each subsequent year, the cumulative total number of ALSTAR labels uploaded by the member will determine the subscription tier level for the upcoming year. Purdue University will invoice annually for the ALSTAR subscription fee.
