Canada - Regulations Amending the Pest Control Products Regulations (Ultraviolet Radiation-emitting Devices and Ozone-generating Devices)

The amendments to the Pest Control Products Regulations continue the protections introduced under the Interim Order Respecting Ultraviolet Radiation-emitting Devices and Ozone-generating Devices, with some minor changes and clarifications.

Due to serious health and safety concerns and the common availability of these devices, Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) amended the Pest Control Products Regulations to continue the regulation of certain UV devices and ozone-generating devices, including the requirement that they be subject to safety and efficacy assessments and registration or authorization prior to entering the Canadian market.

The consultation on the amendments was notified to the WTO under G/TBT/N/CAN/656.

The Regulations come into force on June 8, 2022, or on the day they are registered if it is after the IO ceases to have effect.
