Consultation on Further strengthening protection of health and the environment: Targeted review of the Pest Control Products Act, Discussion Document DIS2022-01

Update to Consultation on Targeted Review of the Pesticide Control Products Act

The online consultation will be extended until June 30, 2022 inclusively.

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) invites stakeholders and the public to submit written comments on Discussion Document DIS2022-01, Further Strengthening Protection of Health and the Environment: Targeted Review of the Pest Control Products Act.

PMRA is currently advancing a Transformation Agenda that includes a number of program change initiatives intended to: further strengthen human health and environmental protection through modernized business processes for the review of pesticides; improve transparency and public access to information and data across the regulatory pesticide processes; and increase the use of comprehensive, real-world data on water monitoring, crop production and pesticide use, as well as independent scientific advice. To support implementation of these transformation initiatives, and in alignment with the Government's commitments, this targeted review of the related provisions of the Pest Control Products Act is being undertaken.

This Discussion Document is intended to seek your input on specific questions to help inform the development of potential targeted legislative changes to the Pest Control Products Act. For ease of reference, PMRA has collated the list of questions in Annex 3 of the consultation document.
