Fludioxonil is a fungicide registered in Canada for use on various food commodities. The proposed MRL increase was requested by Syngenta Canada to align Canada’s current MRL for fludioxonil on sugar beet roots with that of the United States of America. This was done so sugar beet roots or any processed food commodities derived from sugar beet roots that may contain fludioxonil residues can be imported and sold in Canada…
The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) invites the public to submit
written comments on the proposed maximum residue limit (MRL) for
fludioxonil up to 75 days from the date of publication of this consultation
document. The PMRA will consider all comments received before making a
final decision on the proposed MRL for fludioxonil.

Reporting to Canadians
Health Canada will make the results of this consultation available on this
website. Once the decision on fludioxonil is finalized, the established
MRLs will be legally in effect as of the date that they are entered into
the MRL database,
an online query application that allows users to search for established
MRLs, regulated under the Pest Control Products Act, both for
pesticides or food commodities.
