Science Advisory Committee on Pest Control Products: Overview


The Science Advisory Committee on Pest Control Products provides Health Canada with independent scientific advice to support evidence-based decision making on pesticide health and environmental risk and value assessments as well as development of risk management options. The committee reviews scientific information pertaining to certain Health Canada pesticide evaluations conducted as part of new applications to register or amend a pesticide product, requests to modify a maximum residue limit (MRL), special reviews or re-evaluations.

PMRA maintains the responsibility and the sole authority to make regulatory decisions on pesticides taking into consideration the advice provided by the Committee.
