Ziram .: H113-27/2016-6E-PDF

After a re-evaluation of the fungicide ziram, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act and Regulations, is proposing the cancellation of all ziram uses in Canada. An evaluation of available scientific information found that, under the current conditions of use, ziram products pose potential risks of concern to human health and the environment. Based on the health and environmental assessments, risks of concern were identified for both workers and the general public in addition to birds, mammals and aquatic organisms. This proposal affects all end-use products containing ziram registered in Canada. This Proposed Re-evaluation Decision is a consultation document that summarizes the science evaluation for ziram and presents the reasons for the proposed re-evaluation decision. The information is presented in two parts. The Overview describes the regulatory process and key points of the evaluation, while the Science Evaluation provides additional technical information on the assessment of ziram.
