Regulation of Nitrification and Urease Inhibitors Under the Fertilizers Act

 In Pesticides

By: Teri Dickinson, Regulatory Affairs Group Manager, email

Nitrification and urease inhibitors imported into or sold in Canada are now subject to registration as supplements under the Fertilizers Act and Fertilizers Regulations, administered by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

Nitrification and urease inhibitors are nitrogen management products that can be applied with many forms of nitrogen-based fertilizers to increase nutrient use efficiency. Effective June 3, 2019, Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) will not require nitrification inhibitors to be registered under the Pest Control Products Act (PCPA), and will be amending the Pest Control Products Regulations to exempt these products from all provisions of the PCPA.

After June 30, 2020, products that are not registered or have an application in the queue, may be subject to enforcement action.
