Consultation on Special Review of Naled and Its Associated End use Product under subsection 17(1) of Pest Control Products Act, Proposed Special Review Decision PSRD2019 02

Notice to the reader:

This consultation is now closed.

Health Canada is consulting Canadians over the next 45 days on its proposed special review decision for naled (end-use product name Dibrom Insecticide), a pesticide used by commercial applicators to control insects on crops, pastures and around structures. This is one of two special reviews for naled, conducted to assess new concerns around occupational risks (the other special review of naled, PSRD2019-03, was conducted in response to the European Union’s decision to prohibit all uses due to health and environmental concerns). New information indicated that that risks to workers associated with the use of naled are not considered to be acceptable. Health Canada is therefore proposing to cancel all uses of naled.

For more information on the proposed decision open the “Proposed Special Review Decision”.
