A Renewal/Discontinuation Notice Email with a list of fully registered pest control products that expire on December 31, 2016 was sent in July 2016 to each Registrant's official regulatory email address.
The deadline for submission of a renewal or discontinuation is September 26, 2016. Failure to renew or discontinue a product will result in its expiry. Please note that this is a separate notice than the submission of Annual Sales Report or payment of Maintenance Fees, and it is an offence under the Pest Control Products Act to manufacture, import, sell or use an expired product.
There are three options for submitting renewal applications to the PMRA. In order to prevent the creation of duplicate submissions, please use only one delivery method:
With an activated account, submit the electronic Renewal/Discontinuation form using the Secure Web Portal, 'Submit an Application' section, 'Renewal' option.
Submit the paper or electronic Renewal/Discontinuation Form to:
Please note that email is not a secure method of delivery. Submit the electronic Renewal/ Discontinuation Form to the PMRA's central email. The subject line of the email must include the keywords "[Product No.] Renewal 2016", or "[Product No.] Discontinuation".
If the Registrant has affirmed in the Renewal/Discontinuation Form that there are no changes to the last approved SPSF(s) and/or label (or if the changes are Notifiable as per DIR2013-02), and the PMRA determines that the product is eligible for renewal of registration, a Renewal Certificate will be issued with a validity period of five (5) years.
If the Registrant has instead affirmed in the Renewal/Discontinuation Form that there are changes to the last approved SPSF and/or label that require an Amendment application, and the PMRA determines that the product is eligible for renewal of registration, a Renewal Certificate will be issued and granted a validity period of five (5) years. However, the product will receive the registration status 'Full Registration with Conditions'. Due to this, the Registrant will be required to submit an amendment application for the product by 2017-12-31 to register the affirmed changes and meet the conditions of registration. A 'Full Registration with Conditions' status, or reduced expiry date extension, may also be given to certain products based on PMRA's review.
If the Registrant has indicated in the Renewal/Discontinuation Form that the product is being discontinued, they will be informed in writing once the process is complete.
