Consultation on cyclaniliprole, Proposed Maximum Residue Limit PMRL2023-46

Current status: Open

Opened on 13 December 2023 and will close for consultation on 26 February 2024

Health Canada is consulting the public and seeking your feedback on proposed maximum residue limit (MRL) increases due to new cyclaniliprole uses on peppers/eggplants and tomatoes. MRLs were previously set for peppers/eggplants and tomatoes grown in the field. The proposed revisions would apply to these crops grown in Canada. These new uses have already been approved in the United States and the proposed revisions to the Canadian MRLs are aligned with the established US tolerances for these crops.

An MRL is the highest amount of a specific pesticide residue allowed on a particular food when a pesticide is used according to label directions. The MRLs are being revised to allow cyclaniliprole to be used on greenhouse crops grown in Canada and will also apply to foods imported into Canada or grown in Canada.


What is the proposed MRL decision

This consultation is on the proposed decision to accept the requests to

To address these requests, Health Canada conducted scientific evaluations to determine the potential impact of the new cyclaniliprole greenhouse uses in Canada. Results from these evaluations show that the new cyclaniliprole uses, and the resulting revised MRLs, would continue to meet Health Canada's requirements for the protection of human health.
