Under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has added new uses on pulse crops to the product label of Express SG Herbicide, containing technical grade tribenuron-methyl. The specific uses approved in Canada are detailed on the label of Express SG Herbicide, Pest Control Products Act Registration Number 28262.
Corresponding maximum residue limits (MRLs) were proposed in the consultation document published on 11 March 2010, Proposed Maximum Residue Limit PMRL2010-19, Tribenuron-methyl. The PMRA received no comments in response to this consultation.
To comply with Canada's international trade obligations, consultation on the proposed MRLs was also conducted internationally by notifying the World Trade Organization, as coordinated by the Standards Council of Canada. No comments were received as a result of the World Trade Organization consultation.
The following MRLs take legal effect as of the publication date of this document and either replace or are in addition to the MRLs already established for tribenuron-methyl.
