Information technology modernization

On this page

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is modernizing its information technology (IT) system to support its transformation objectives. We're changing the system to transform the way we store information, making it easier to search and analyze. This improves the usability and transparency of information.

Our new IT system will host and manage all pesticide information and pest management regulatory processes. An updated portal will allow registrants to file and manage their own applications, and eventually allow PMRA to more effectively release the data that supports our reviews.

Forms for registrants and applicants and the e-Index Builder (eIB) application have been updated. Tools to support the structured pesticide label and the pesticide use information management system are also being co-developed with internal and external stakeholders.

Structured pesticide label

PMRA is developing a structured pesticide label. This will allow registrants to build and submit a pesticide label using a new tool and will make the information more usable and easier to find. The structured pesticide label will also allow the information to be displayed more consistently and make the label easier to read.

The system will be developed in 3 parts:

We will collect feedback on the design and functionality of the structured pesticide label during the pilot and proof of concept exercise and adjust as needed. If you want to learn more, participate in the proof-of-concept exercise or the pilot, contact the Pest Management Information Service.

Pesticide Use Information Management System

PMRA is also developing a Pesticide Use Information Management System (PUIMS) so it is easier to search, manage, and share information about pesticide use.

The new system will have two main components:

We collected feedback on the online intake form during the pilot and will continue to develop the PUIMS. If you want to learn more, contact the Pest Management Information Service.
