What is Annual Sales Reporting?

In accordance with the Pest Control Products Sales Information Reporting Regulations, registrants with products registered by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) are required to report the quantity of pesticide made available for sale on an annual basis.

Changes in 2023

As of April 1, 2023, Health Canada is implementing a new approach.

  • The PMRA will no longer follow up with registrants who do not submit their volumetric sales report by the June 1st deadline.

The PMRA has already sent a one-time notice to Registrant Contacts in the middle of February this year to complete the Sales report for the 2022 Calendar year.

Enforcement Actions

Registrants who fail to submit their volumetric sales report by the June 1st deadline will be subject to enforcement actions under the Pest Control Products Act (PCPA) that may include:

  • Warning letters
  • Compliance orders
  • Court orders
  • Recommendation to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada for prosecution

Fees, Reduced Rates and Deadlines

PMRA applies an annual charge of about $4,000 per registration. If a Registrant has made fewer sales, they can apply for reduced annual fees. PMRA will be sending Annual Charge Packages to registrants at the end of February this year. The deadline to apply for reduced fees is April 1st, 2023.
