Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) proposed to re-evaluates Syngenta’s fungicide, cyprodinil.
Cyprodinil is registered for use on a variety of terrestrial food/feed and non-food/non-feed crops, greenhouse food crops and outdoor ornamentals. As of 6 January 2017, there are one technical and seven commercial class end-use products containing cyprodinil registered in Canada.
Under the authority of section 16 of the Pest Control Products Act, the registrant of cyprodinil was notified of the initiation of the re-evaluation of cyprodinil. Following this, the registrant of cyprodinil technical grade active ingredient indicated support of all uses included on the labels of end-use products in Canada.
The re-evaluation project plan outlines the timeline, the anticipated areas of focus for the risk assessments, and the data requirements for the re-evaluation of cyprodinil.
The re-evaluation of cyprodinil is defined as a Category 1 as described in Regulatory Directive DIR2016-04, Management of Pesticides Re-evaluation Policy, which was adopted on 1 December 2016. However, because this re-evaluation was initiated prior to the publication of DIR2016-04, the proposed re-evaluation decision for cyprodinil is anticipated to be published for consultation by June 2019. The re-evaluation timeline may be updated if, during the risk assessment, the PMRA identifies additional areas of focus that should be considered.
Human Health Risk Assessment
New assessments will be conducted for toxicology and dietary exposure. Existing assessments with minor updates are considered to be adequate to support the re-evaluation of cyprodinil for the other aspects of human health assessment.
Environmental Risk Assessment
New assessments will be conducted for environmental fate, water modelling and environmental exposure.
The PMRA has identified the need for the technical registrant to provide data for cyprodinil related to toxicology, dietary exposure and the environment. In addition, information regarding the registered use pattern has been requested from the registrants, to inform the risk assessments.
