Canadian regulator re-registers simazine after evaluation

9 March 2010

After a recent re-evaluation of the herbicide simazine, Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has granted continued registration of products containing simazine for sale and use in Canada.

An evaluation of available scientific information found that products containing simazine do not present unacceptable risks to human health or the environment when used according to label directions. As a condition of the continued registration of simazine uses, new risk-reduction measures must be included on the labels of all products. No additional data are required at this time.

For more information on the measures introduced to minimise risks, see the Health Canada website.
