As of June 1, 2016 Health Canada (HC) will no longer issue conditional registrations for pesticides.

Currently conditional registrations may be granted to pesticide products when the scientific review determines that the risks of a pesticide are acceptable, but more information is needed. In this cases, the pesticide is approved prior to the review of additional information.

In future, all pesticides products will undergo the same rigorous scientific evaluation. All necessary information will have to be reviewed prior to the issuance of pesticide product approvals.
