    CENTRAL INSECTICIDES LABORATORY (C.I.L.)

    The Central Insecticides Laboratory was set up under  Section 16 of the Insecticides Act, 1968 with the major   objectives of  pre and post registration verification of the properties performance and hazards of pesticides and the proposed use claimed by the Toxicology manufacturers. It has four Divisions namely   Bioassay Division, Chemistry Division, Division Medical and Packaging and Processing Division.

    Functions of CIL:

     

       The functions of the Laboratory as envisaged under Rule 5 of Insecticides Rules 1971 are as follows:-

     

    • To analyze such samples of insecticides sent to it under the Act by any officer or authority and submission of    certificates of analysis to the concerned authority.
    • To carry out such investigations as may be necessary for the purpose of ensuring the conditions of Registration of  Insecticides.
    • To determine the efficacy and toxicity of insecticides;

    To carry out such other functions as may be entrusted to it by the Central Government or by a  State Government with the permission of the Central Government & after consultation with the Central Insecticides Board.

    TOP ^

    Activities of CIL

     

       1.  To verify Quality of samples of Insecticides, submitted by any Officer or Authority Authorized by the Central or 

            State Government.

     

       2.  To investigate Insecticides with a view to verify conditions of registration.

        3.  To determine efficacy and Toxicity of Insecticides; and

     

       4.  Any other function as may be entrusted by the Central Government or by a State Government with the permission

            of the Government and after consultation with the Central Insecticides Board.

    OBJECTIVE:

    To discharge the techno-legal duties as specified under Rule 5 of Insecticides Rules, 1971.

     

    ACTIVITIES:

    a.  To analyze samples of pesticides sent to it under the Act by any officer or authority authorized by the Central or State Governments and submission of certificate of analysis to the concerned authority;

     

    b.  To carry out such investigations as may be necessary for the purpose of ensuring the conditions of Registration of insecticides;

     

    c. To validate methods of analysis for newly introduced pesticides for their adoptability.

     

    d.   To facilitate formulation of Indian Standards on pesticides.

     

    e.  To carry out investigational analysis on imported commodities, suspected to contain pesticides.

     

    ACHIEVEMENT:

     

          Targets on analysis capacities of labs. have been fixed. Accordingly, the statistics on quality control of pesticides at State Pesticides Testing Laboratories (SPTLs), Central Insecticides Laboratory (CIL) and action taken by the States is given in tables____________, respectively.
