diazinon - subsection 17(2) of Pest Control Products Act.

"Pursuant to subsection 17(2) of the Pest Control Products Act, the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has conducted a special review of pest control products containing diazinon based on the European Commission decision to prohibit all uses of this active ingredient due to concerns relating to human health and the environment (European Commission, 2007). The proposed special review decision was published for consultation in the Re-evaluation Note REV2016-19, Special Review of Diazinon-Subsection 17(2) of Pest Control Products Act: 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. The PMRA, under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, is confirming the current registration of pest control products containing diazinon in Canada. Mitigation measures to reduce risk as proposed in REV2016-19 are required"--Special review decision, p. 1.
