"Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act and Regulations, is proposing full registration for the sale and use of 1-Methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) Technical and Harvista 1.3 SC to apple trees/orchards to slow ripening and delay harvest. 1-Methylcyclopropene is currently registered for postharvest use on stored food and feed. The detailed review of 1-Methylcyclopropene can be found in REG2004-07, 1-Methylcyclopropene, PRD2007-11, 1-Methylcyclopropene and RD2008-03, 1-Methylcyclopropene. An evaluation of available scientific information found that, under the approved conditions of use, the product has value and does not present an unacceptable risk to human health or the environment. This Overview describes the key points of the evaluation, while the Science Evaluation provides detailed technical information on the human health, environmental and value assessments of 1-Methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) Technical and Harvista 1.3 SC”--Overview, p. 1.
