Consultation on Special Review of Naled and Its Associated End use Product under subsection 17(2) of Pest Control Products Act, Proposed Special Review Decision PSRD2019-03

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, and it is conducted in response to the European Union’s decision to prohibit all uses due to health and environmental concerns (the other special review of naled, PRSD2019-02, was conducted to assess new concerns around occupational risks). An evaluation of the scientific information related to the aspects of concern showed that the potential risks to human health among workers, and potential risks to aquatic organisms, 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".
