Consultation on Tebufenozide and Its Associated End-use Products, Proposed Re-evaluation Decision PRVD2019-06
Health Canada is consulting Canadians on the proposal to continue all uses of tebufenozide, with label updates to further protect health and the environment, following the re-evaluation under the Pest Management Regulatory Agency’s (PMRA) Re-evaluation Program.
Tebufenozide is a pesticide used by growers and commercial applicators to control moth larvae on certain crops, ornamentals, and trees. Products containing tebufenozide include Mimic, Limit and Confirm products. For a full list of products containing tebufenozide, please consult Appendix I in the PRVD or visit the Pesticide Label Search database.
To meet current labelling standards, label updates related to personal protective equipment, spray drift, and restricted-entry intervals are proposed. Other proposed updates also include label statements to reduce runoff to adjacent aquatic habitats, an environmental hazard statement to indicate that tebufenozide is toxic to sediment-dwelling invertebrates, and spray buffer zones to protect aquatic habitats from drift.
For more information on the proposed decision open the “Proposed Re-evaluation Decision”.
