Pesticidal uses of chromium were not assessed in this report. The pesticide chromic acid is subject to the provisions of the Pest Control Products Act, and its regulatory status as a heavy-duty wood preservative is currently being re-evaluated (see Announcement A92-02: "Reevaluation of Heavy Duty Wood Preservatives", Agriculture Canada, Food Production and Inspection Branch, July 2, 1992). As part of the pesticide re-evaluation process, Environment Canada and Health Canada will assess the potential effects on the environment and on human health resulting from these pesticidal uses of chromium.
