The Pesticides Control Authority (PCA) is a statutory body of the Government of Jamaica, mandated through the Pesticides Act of 1975 to regulate, manage and control pesticide usage in Jamaica. Other Acts also impinge on pesticide control, but the Pesticides Act (1975) was legislated to allow for specific control of the pesticide industry.

Embodied within the Pesticides Act (1975) is the formation of a Pesticides Control Authority (PCA). The members of the Board are appointed by the Minister of Health and are made up of representatives from public and private sector organisations who have the expertise required for pesticide related matters. The Board meets monthly and sets the policies to regulate the industry in relation to the importation, manufacture, use, distribution and control of pesticides, among other things.
