This notice is to advise that pursuant to subsection 17(2) of the Pest Control Products Act (the Act), the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) will initiate special reviews related to registered pest control products containing the active ingredients included in Appendix I.
The PMRA has considered subsection 17(2) with respect to the active ingredients and has determined that this subsection's criteria have been met, namely that a member country of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development prohibits all uses of this active ingredient for health or environmental reasons.
Once the aspects of the pest control products that prompted the special review have been evaluated, the PMRA will publish its proposed decision. Once its proposed decision is published, the public consultation, pursuant to section 28 of the Act, will take place.
At any point during the special reviews, pursuant to subsection 20(1)(b), should evidence become available demonstrating reasonable grounds to believe that one or more of the registered pest control products containing the active ingredients included in Appendix I endangers human health or the environment, the PMRA may cancel or amend the pest control product's registration.
