Pesticide Control and Related Information
Aerosol Pesticide Products containing LPG
Pesticides are subject to regulatory control under the Pesticides Ordinance (Cap.133) administered by Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD). As some of the aerosol pesticides products contain Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), they are also subject to regulatory control under the Gas Safety Ordinance (Cap. 51), administered by the Electrical & Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) in addition to Cap.133.
Under the Gas Safety Ordinance (Cap. 51), only approved containers can be used to contain LPG. The Ordinance also regulates the manufacture, importation, storage, transport, supply and use of products containing LPG. Any quantity of storage that exceeds the exempt quantity for storage must be approved by EMSD.
