Under the umbrella of the United States–Canada Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC) workplan, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) and the United States’ Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed harmonized product chemistry templates for use by registrants when submitting pesticide registration packages. The templates are based on OECD format but have been streamlined to address a single product/application and will facilitate the review of product chemistry data for global and joint registrations, as well as other actions.  EPA and PMRA encourage applicants to begin using these templates to organize and summarize the product chemistry data for each product and/or registration package submitted to the corresponding regulatory agency.

For more information on the templates, please attend the webinar which will be presented by the EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) and Health Canada’s PMRA to announce the release of the harmonized product chemistry templates on June 2, 2016, from 1:00 pm -2:00 pm Eastern Time.
