Consultation on Kresoxim-methyl and Its Associated End-use Products, Proposed Re‑evaluation Decision PRVD2020-10
Health Canada is consulting Canadians on the proposal that products containing kresoxim-methyl are acceptable for continued registration in Canada.
Kresoxim-methyl is a fungicide registered for use on apples, pears and grapes and can be applied by ground application equipment only to manage mildew and black rot on those fruit. As a result of the re-evaluation of kresoxim-methyl, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) proposes further risk-reduction measures in addition to those already identified on kresoxim-methyl product labels.
The re-evaluation found risks to human health and the environment are acceptable with proposed mitigation measures including additional personal protective equipment requirements for workers, lower the number of applications per season to protect the general population, and enhanced label statements to protect the environment. Proposed statements prohibit use of kresoxim-methyl to control aquatic pests as well as the use of aerial application equipment.
Currently registered products containing kresoxim-methyl can be found in Appendix I in the PRVD or by visiting the Pesticide Label Search database.
For more information on the proposed decision open the “Proposed Re-evaluation Decision”.
