Special Review Decision

Pursuant to subsection 17(2) of the Pest Control Products Act, the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) conducted a special review of pest control products containing trifluralin based on the decision taken by the European Union in 2010 (European Commission, 2010) to not include the active substance trifluralin in Annex I to Directive 91/414/EEC due to environmental concerns. The PMRA evaluated the aspects of concern that prompted the special review in accordance with subsection 18(4) of the Pest Control Products Act. The proposed special review decision was published for consultation in the Re-evaluation Note REV2015-12, Special Review of Trifluralin: Proposed Decision for Consultation, and it outlines the Agency’s proposed decision and the reasons for it.

No comments were received during the consultation process and the PMRA, under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, is confirming the current registration of pest control products containing trifluralin in Canada.

Regulatory Directive DIR2014-01, Approach to Special Reviews, presents the details of the PMRA’s special review approach.
