Reminder: CAAR Members Invited to Comment on Draft MRL Policy

CAAR members are encouraged to submit comments to the Canada Grains Council (CGC) regarding the Market Acceptance of Pesticide Use Policy before August 31, 2019.

Canada’s grain value chain has developed a framework to proactively evaluate the MRL-related trade risk of chemistry/crop use patterns, as well as to develop a consistent approach across all commodity value chains in assessing and making recommendations on the use of various pesticides given potential foreign regulatory import hurdles. 

The goal of the framework is to strike a balance between enabling the commercialization of innovative and new chemistry/crop use pattern products and ensuring that Canadian exports are not exposed to unacceptable trade risk.

Please direct your comments to the Canada Grains Council at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. prior to August 31, 2019. Click here for more information and the link to the draft policy document.
