Ministry of Environment
Proposed changes to the Integrated Pest Management Regulation
The Ministry of Environment intends to amend the Integrated Pest Management Regulation (IPMR) to ensure that most pesticides used in landscaped areas are applied by trained people. Amendments to the regulation will also change the way Domestic class pesticides are sold and update the schedule of excluded pesticides.
The ministry has developed a Policy Intentions Paper for Consultation. The purpose of this intentions paper is to describe the ministry’s proposed policy direction and invite comments from the public and stakeholders.
You are invited to submit comments on the proposed changes described in the intentions paper below. Comments regarding the proposed changes will be carefully considered in revising the IPMR.
All submissions will be treated with confidentiality by ministry staff and contractors when preparing consultation reports. Please note that comments you provide and information that identifies you as the source of those comments may be publicly available if a Freedom of Information request is made under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
Comments may be made in the response form or sent to Cindy Bertram of C. Rankin & Associates, who has been contracted to manage consultation comments, at:
Mail: PO Box 28159 Westshore RPO, Victoria B.C. V9B 6K8
Please contact Cindy Bertram if you are unable to download a copy of the intentions paper from this website or if you have any questions about the paper.
This comment period is open until December 8, 2013.
