A manufacturer may request to have their listed products de-listed from the QPL by submitting a Hort Update Application through the Application Portal.
To request that products be de-listed, complete the following steps:
Create or log in to your MyDLC Account.
If you have not done so already, create a MyDLC account. Once logged in, select the manufacturer you will be submitting on behalf of. Enter the Application Portal by clicking on the blue Application Portal button. Note that this button is only accessible for manufacturers and users authorized to submit applications.
Start a new application.
Create a new Horticultural Lighting – OEM Update or Horticultural Lighting – Private Label Update as appropriate. Name the application for your reference and select the manufacturer you are submitted on behalf of. If you have not done so already, download and complete the Hort OEM update app excel form (.xlsx) or Hort Private label update app excel form as appropriate. Specifically for delisting applications, only the Product ID and Model Number columns need to be filled out. Upload this completed form under the “Upload Completed Application Excel Form” section. If there are errors within your uploaded form, a red error message will display the reason why the form was not accepted.
Complete the online application questionnaire.
Complete the application questionnaire by entering all required information and uploading all required supporting documentation files. Your answers will be auto-saved, and you may exit and return to the questionnaire at any time. The system will allow you to replace and delete files as necessary before submitting your application. In addition to the questions and files marked as required on the questionnaire the following are required for applications to delist products which should be submitted under the miscellaneous question.
- A QPL download (Excel file format) of the products to be de-listed.
- A signed statement on company letterhead requesting the products be de-listed.
This should include a statement on why the products are being de-listed.
NOTE: When submitting a de-listing request, please be aware that when Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) products are de-listed, their corresponding Private Label products will also be de-listed. All associated private labelers will be informed of a product de-listing with a message instructing them to reach out to their OEM for additional information regarding the de-listing. Additionally, please note that child products cannot be listed on the QPL without a bracketing parent product. If de-listing all parent products of the original product family, please include all associated child products in submitted QPL download. Once products have been de-listed via this application submission process, any re-listing requests may require a new product application. This includes products de-listed in error by the manufacturer.
The application forms below should be used on all applications submitted through the Application Portal.
