Special review decision: H113-5/2017-9E-PDF


"Pursuant to subsection 17(2) of the Pest Control Products Act, the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) initiated a special review of pest control products containing atrazine based on the decision taken by the European Commission in 2004 to prohibit all uses of atrazine. The PMRA evaluated the aspect 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 REV2015-11, Special Review of Atrazine: Proposed Decision for Consultation, and it outlines the Agency’s proposed decision and the reasons for it. Comments received during the consultation process that were related to the aspect of concern (the potential for atrazine and its chlorinated transformation products to leach to groundwater) were taken into consideration in making the final special review decision and they did not result in changes to the proposed regulatory decision as described in REV2015-11. Appendix I summarizes the comments received related to the aspect of concern and provides the PMRA’s response to these comments. The PMRA, under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, is confirming the current registration of atrazine in Canada"--Special review decision, p. 1.
