"After a re-evaluation of octhilinone as a material preservative, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, is granting continued registration of products containing octhilinone for sale and use in Canada. An evaluation of available scientific information found that most uses of octhilinone products do not present unacceptable risks to human health or the environment when used according to the revised conditions of registration, which include amended label directions. The use of octhilinone as a material preservative in coatings (paints and stains) is cancelled to address potential risks of concern to human health. Label amendments, as summarized below and listed in Appendix II, are required for all end-use products that are material preservatives. No additional data are requested at this time“--Re-evaluation decision, p. 1.
