Canada to review regulation of essential oils in repellents

The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is to conduct a review of its regulation of personal insect repellents containing plant-derived essential oils. In view of their direct application to the skin, the Agency wants to examine whether existing data requirements for unconventional pest control products are adequate for human health protection or if an alternative approach should be taken. The review will include a consultation with an external advisory panel composed of scientific experts, followed by an invitation for comments from the public, industry and other stakeholders. The review is expected to be completed and published for consultation in 2016.
