Notice: Consultation on Guidance for Preparing Safety Data Sheets According to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals for Pest Control Products in Canada

Notice to the reader:

The online consultation is now closed.

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) invites the public to submit written comments on the guidance for registrants of pest control products on the expected format and content of GHS-consistent Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) for registered pest control products in Canada.

This guideline is intended for the voluntary adoption and use by all registrants with a pest control product registered in Canada. SDSs are primarily for use by workers (for example, handlers, warehouse workers, agricultural workers, pre- and post- application workers, and vendors) in workplaces involved in pest control product application and handling. Registrants should keep this audience in mind when writing an SDS. However, registrants should also take into account that SDSs are commonly used by emergency responders (including health professionals), consumers, and those involved in the transportation of dangerous goods.
