Pest Management Regulatory Agency External Advisory Bodies
There are two external advisory bodies that play important roles that support the work of the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA): the Pest Management Advisory Council, and the Science Advisory Committee on Pest Control Products.
The Pest Management Advisory Council (PMAC) is a multi-stakeholder group that fosters communication and dialogue among stakeholders and with the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) and provides advice directly to the Minister of Health on the policies and issues relating to the federal pest management regulatory system.
The Science Advisory Committee on Pest Control Products (SAC-PCP) provides scientific advice to Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA). PMRA is the branch of Health Canada responsible for regulating pesticides under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act. PMRA's primary mandate is to prevent unacceptable risks to Canadians and the environment from the use of these products.
