Consultation on (Z,Z)-3,13-Octadecadien-1-yl acetate and Its Associated End-use Products, Proposed Re-evaluation Decision PRVD2018-07

This consultation is now closed.

(Z,Z)-3,13-octadecadien-1-yl acetate is a naturally occurring pheromone, which disrupts mating in certain species of moths. It is a registered pesticide used by growers and licensed applicators to control moth populations in various trees and bushes. When used according to label directions, the potential risk to human health and the environment is not expected to be of concern.

Following a scheduled re-evaluation under the Re-evaluation Program, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is consulting Canadians on the proposal to continue the registration of products containing (Z,Z)-3,13-octadecadien-1-yl acetate for sale and use in Canada.

Brand names include Isomate and Peach Tree Borer Pheromone. Labels for all registered (Z,Z)-3,13-Octadecadien-1-yl acetate products can be found in the pesticide label search database.

For more information on the proposed decision open the “Proposed Re-evaluation Decision”.
