EPA's Electronic Pesticide General Permit Notice of Intent (eNOI) Home Page

Electronic Notice of Intent (eNOI) Icon

Click on the logo above to enter EPA's electronic Notice of Intent (eNOI) system.

EPA has developed an Electronic Notice of Intent (eNOI) system for pesticide Decision-makers that need to submit Notices of Intent (NOIs), Annual Reports or Notices of Termination (NOTs) under EPA's Pesticide General Permit (PGP). The eNOI system is a free online service. Decision-makers should use this system only if their pesticide discharges are located in a geographic area where EPA is the permitting authority. Please click the eNOI logo to begin to filing an NOI, Annual Report or NOT.

Frequently Asked Questions


Who must submit an NOI?

EPA has developed an interactive web tool to assist Operators in determining their requirements under the PGP, including whether or not they need to submit an NOI. Click here to access the interactive tool and also see Part 1.2 of the permit (174 pp, 1.3MB) to learn whether you need to submit an NOI to obtain coverage under the PGP.

Return to FAQs


Will I receive acknowledgment that my NOI was received and granted?

If the NOI is submitted electronically, the system will provide an immediate email confirmation to the certifying official that the NOI was received. EPA will provide separate notification within 30 days whether coverage has been granted or if further review is required. The status of a pending NOI can also be viewed on the eNOI system by clicking here.

If the NOI is submitted in paper form, EPA will not provide confirmation of receipt. EPA will only provide direct notification of whether coverage has been granted or if further review is required. As soon as EPA processes a paper NOI and is pending authorization, the NOI can be viewed on the eNOI system by clicking here.

Return to FAQs


For what reason should a Decision-maker modify an NOI?

The PGP requires Decision-makers to submit changes to previous NOI forms where, for example, coverage for an additional discharge not included in the original NOI is being requested. EPA expects these request for NOI changes to be submitted primarily in four instances: (1) coverage for a new or expanded pest management area is being requested, (2) discharge to a Tier 3 water is identified for permit coverage, or (3) discharge to any Waters of the U.S. containing National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Listed Resources of Concern, as defined in Appendix A of the permit, is being requested or (4) changes in the treatment area, pesticide product, method or rate of application, or approximate dates of applications for discharges to Waters of the U.S. containing NMFS Listed Resources of Concern. In these four instances, Decision-makers are required to submit revised NOIs that reflect changes in the areas and types of activities for which coverage is being requested.

See Part 1.2.2 of the permit (PDF) (174 pp, 1.3MB) and Part III, 1.2.2 of the accompanying fact sheet for more information.

Return to FAQs


Who must submit an Annual Report?

Decision-makers who meet the following conditions are required to submit an Annual Report:

  • Decision-makers who are required to submit NOIs and are large entities (as defined in Appendix A of the PGP), or
  • Decision-makers who are required to submit NOIs and are small entities with discharges to Waters of the U.S. containing NMFS Listed Resources of Concern

See Parts 7.6 and 7.7 of the PGP for more information. Annual Reports can be filed through the eNOI system. Annual reports are due no later than February 15 of the following year for pesticide activities that occurred during the previous calendar year.

Return to FAQs


Who must submit a Notice of Termination (NOT)?

Any Decision-maker who was required to submit an NOI and meets the conditions of Part 1.2.5 of the PGP (PDF) (174 pp, 1.3MB) is required to submit an NOT to terminate coverage under this permit. NOTs can be filed through the eNOI system. If the Decision-maker is required to submit annual reports prior to the termination of authorization under the PGP, an annual report must be submitted for the portion of the year up through the date of termination.
