Special review decision

Pursuant to subsection 17(2) of the Pest Control Products Act, Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) initiated a special review of iprodione based on the decision taken by the European Commission to prohibit the use of iprodione due to human health and environmental concerns in 2017.

Health Canada evaluated the aspects of concern in accordance with subsection 18(4) of the Pest Control Products Act. The proposed special review decision was published for consultationFootnote 1 in the Proposed Special Review Decision PSRD2021-01, Special Review for Iprodione and Its Associated End-use Products. One comment from the Forest Nursery Association of British Columbia was received during the consultation period in support of the proposed special review decision.

Iprodione is a contact fungicide registered for commercial uses in Canada. Re-evaluation of iprodione was completed in 2018 (Re-evaluation Decision RVD2018-16, Iprodione and Its Associated End-use Products), and continued registration is granted with additional risk mitigation measures. Currently registered products containing iprodione are listed in Appendix I.

Following an evaluation of the aspects of concern, Health Canada has determined that continued registration of products containing iprodione is considered to be acceptable under current conditions of use. Therefore, Health Canada, under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, is confirming the current registration of pest control products containing iprodione in Canada. No additional risk reduction measures are required.

All pest control products containing iprodione that are registered in Canada are subject to this special review decision. This document presents the final regulatory decisionFootnote 2 for the special review of iprodione. The complete reference list of all information used in this final special review decision was set out in PSRD2021-01.
