Pest Control Products Fees Regulations

 In news, Pesticides

By: Joe McCarthy, Lab Service Manager/Senior Regulatory Affairs Specialist, email

For the first time in nearly 20 years, Health Canada is proposing fee changes for Pest Control product (PCP) Registration and Annual Registration (Right to Sell). The Proposal includes both significant increases and decreases to the existing fee structure for Product applications or amendments.

New fees are introduced for semiochemical and microbial Pest Control Products. No new fees are proposed for non-conventional/reduced-risk pesticides. Also proposed is an automatic annual 2% increase to application fees on April 1st each year. This is aligned with the current practice for Drug Registration fees. Annual Right to Sell fees will increase to 4% of annual sales instead of 3%, with a lower limit of 100$/yr and an upper cap of 3600$/yr.

The proposed changes are open for comment by interested parties until September 1st, 2016.
