Canada starts special reviews on 23 pesticide active ingredients

The Canadian Pesticide Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has begun special reviews of 23 pesticide active ingredients based on regulatory action in OECD member states, Agrow reports. The PMRA is obliged to carry out a review if all uses of an active ingredient are prohibited for health or environmental reasons in an OECD country. Last year, environmentalist groups sued the PMRA for refusing to conduct special reviews of three active ingredients and for "unreasonable delays" in responding to requests to carry out reviews on 26 others.
