The Science Advisory Committee on Pest Control Products (SAC-PCP) provides Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) with independent scientific advice to support PMRA in evidence-based decision making on pesticides.
PMRA maintains the responsibility and the sole authority to make regulatory decisions on pesticides taking into consideration the advice provided by the Committee.
Advice from the Committee in the form of written Advisory Reports are submitted to the PMRA. Advice linked to a specific pesticide application or post-market evaluation will be made available at the time of the proposed or final decision. A summary of the Committee’s advice and recommendations, as seen in their Advisory Reports, along with the PMRA’s response, will be posted here. The full Reports are available by request.
