Order a copy


This document is an update to the Health Canada Pest Management Regulatory Agency's Guidance for Developing a Database for Conventional Pest Control Products, which was first made available to registrants and applicants of pesticides and other pest control products in July 2013. While amendments in this version relate primarily to the guidance for certain Chemistry (Parts 2 and 3) and Value (Part 10) data requirements, it also includes changes to the Toxicology data requirements section, such as the removal of the 1-year dog study (Part 4). The removal of the routine requirement for the 1-year dog study, for food uses, reflects Health Canada's commitment to reducing the need for animal testing wherever possible and is based on a scientific review conducted by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency.
