Health Canada has completed this stage of the re-evaluation of fungicide folpet. Under the authority of the Pest Control Products Act, Health Canada has determined that with required amendments, continued registration of products containing folpet is acceptable. An evaluation of available scientific information found that all agricultural uses of folpet meet current standards for protection of human health and the environment when used according to the revised label directions with the exception of the azalea stem soak use. 
Folpet is a fungicide used on a number of food crops such as apples, crab apples, grapes, strawberries, cranberries, and field vegetables, as well as ornamental crops. 
The regulatory approach for the re-evaluation of folpet for agricultural uses was first presented in the Proposed Re-evaluation Decision PRVD2018-05, Folpet which underwent a 90 day consultation period ending on 12 June 2018. PRVD2018-05 proposed continued registration of folpet products with mitigation measures such as reduced number of applications, longer re-treatment intervals, increased personal protective equipment (PPE), longer restricted entry intervals, updated aquatic buffer zones, and implementing a water soluble bag formulation for wettable powder formulations. In addition, use on cranberry, cut flowers and azalea stem soak was proposed for cancellation.
