Abamectin .: H113-24/2016-11E-PDF
Under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is proposing to establish maximum residue limits (MRLs) for abamectin on various commodities to permit the import and sale of foods containing such residues. Abamectin is an insecticide currently registered in Canada for use on several crops, including greenhouse food crops and terrestrial food crops. The PMRA must determine the quantity of residues that are likely to remain in or on the imported food commodities when abamectin is used according to label directions in the exporting country, and that such residues will not be a concern to human health. This quantity is then legally established as an MRL on the corresponding imported commodity. An MRL applies to the identified raw agricultural food commodity as well as to any processed food product that contains it, except where separate MRLs are specified for the raw agricultural commodity and a processed product made from it.
