Revised environmental data requirements .: H113-8/2016-1E-PDF

"Environmental data submitted to the Health Canada Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) provides essential insight into the potential impact of a pesticide on the environment and are the foundation of the environmental risk assessment. Environmental data requirements were first developed more than 15 years ago and were recently updated to incorporate scientific advancements and address an overall need for clarity. The purpose of this proposal is to communicate the revised environmental data requirements to industry and other interested parties. This proposal also presents guidance to assist applicants when preparing the environmental portion of the data package. Revisions presented in the current document would supersede environmental data requirements outlined in Regulatory Directive DIR2003-01, Organizing and Formatting a Complete Submission for Pest Control Products. This proposal applies to conventional pesticides only. Data requirements for the registration of antimicrobial products will be examined at a later time. The registration of non-conventional products is discussed in Regulatory Directive DIR2012-01, Guidelines for the Registration of Non-Conventional Pest Control Products"--Intro., p. 1.
