Updated Procedures for the Joint Review of Biopesticides
The Updated Procedures for the Joint Review of Biopesticides (PDF) (11 pp, 83.48K) document describes processes for pre-submission consultation and the registration of products that applicants nominate for joint review. This document replaces all earlier documents on the Joint Review of microbials and biochemicals. The PMRA and the EPA are committed to the joint review of pesticide evaluations on a regular basis. Joint reviews increase the efficiency of the registration process, facilitate simultaneous registration in Canada and the U.S., and increase access to new pest management tools in both countries. Efficient work-sharing requires a mutual understanding of the responsibilities of each agency, as well as common procedures and time frames.
