The purpose of this document is to inform registrants, pesticide regulatory officials and the Canadian public of the re-evaluation and special review work planned by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) for the years 2015-2018. For cyclical re-evaluations, the target dates in this work plan supersede the initial estimates that were noted in individual Project Plan documents. Note that this three-year work plan may change in response to emerging issues that require priority action.

The PMRA is concurrently engaged in variousplanned activities within the re-evaluation program, such as the re-evaluation of active ingredients in the current program (cyclical re-evaluations, pyrethroids and neonicotinoid pollinator assessment), active ingredients remaining from the previous program (Regulatory Directive DIR2001-03, PMRA Re-evaluation Program) and special reviews, as well as addressing confirmatory studies that were required as a result of previous re-evaluation decisions. As a result, resources have been prioritized in order to complete reviews and prepare the related documents noted below, over the next three years (April 2015 to March 2018).

Note that the documents to be published may include, as appropriate:

  • Re-evaluation Notes (REV series), including preliminary risk assessments, special review proposed decisions, interim mitigation measures or updates;
  • Proposed Re-evaluation Decisions (PRVD series); and
  • Re-evaluation Decisions (RVD series).

PMRA will also be publishing a separate document, reporting progress on the active ingredients in the current program (Re-evaluation Note REV2015-04, Progress Update on the Pest Management Regulatory Agency's Re-evaluation Program).

Tables 1-3 provide a list of the chemicals and their expected documents included in the Re-evaluation Program Work Plan for 2015-2018. Table 4 provides a list of the chemicals for which re-evaluation was recently initiated (2014-2015) by the PMRA. Their expected documents and timeframes will be determined in the future.
