Canada details diazinon phase-out

The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) proposes that most uses of the organophosphate insecticide, diazinon, be phased out by the end of 2016. However, if applications to register alternative products have been received by then, a two-year extension may be granted while reviews take place. In 2007, the PMRA called for diazinon to be phased out by 2012, but subsequently decided to devise risk management plans and transition arrangements with stakeholders (Agrow No 581, p 14). Non-critical uses were removed from product labels by March 2012, but for critical uses without registered alternatives, a longer-term phase-out and transition strategy is envisaged.
