Canada to issue own-use import permits:
The Canadian Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has invited growers to apply for permits to import the generic herbicide, ClearOut 41 Plus (glyphosate), from the US. The PMRA expects to issue permits in March in time for spring applications. The permits, which will be issued under the original own-use import scheme, will expire on June 28th. The Agency is developing a new grower import programme to address the concerns over stewardship, equivalency and data protection that arose with the original scheme (Agrow No 508, p 16).
