Import for Research Purposes

Marginal note:Conditions for import

  • (b) the quantity being imported is not more than that specified in a research authorization certificate or research notification certificate or that which is necessary to conduct the research for which a research establishment is exempt under section 55.

Unused Pest Control Products

Marginal note:Unregistered products

 A research establishment must return to the manufacturer any unused unregistered pest control products.

Marginal note:Registered products

 A research establishment must return to the manufacturer any unused registered pest control product unless it is kept by the research establishment to be used by a researcher or cooperator involved in the research in a way that is consistent with the directions on the approved label.

Distribution

Marginal note:Researchers and cooperators only

 A research establishment may not distribute a pest control product that is used in the conduct of research to any person that is not a researcher or cooperator involved in the research, except in accordance with section 65 or 66.

Marginal note:Treated food and feed crops

 When a research authorization certificate is issued, treated food and feed crops from research sites and meat (including meat by-products and fat), milk and eggs that may contain residues as a result of the research must not be sold unless

  • (a) written authorization to do so is set out on the certificate; and

  • (b) in the case of research that involves the use of a chemical pest control product, residues do not exceed an amount that would result in the sale of the food being prohibited under section 4 of the Food and Drugs Act.

Marginal note:Research — section 53 criteria

 In the case of research that meets the criteria set out in section 53 and for which a research notification certificate is issued,

  • (a) in the case of research that involves the use of a chemical pest control product, treated food and feed crops from research sites and meat (including meat by-products and fat), milk and eggs that may contain residues as a result of research must not be sold unless the residues do not exceed an amount that would result in the sale of the food being prohibited under section 4 of the Food and Drugs Act; and

  • (b) in the case of research that involves the use of a microbial agent, other than one that contains Bacillus thuringiensis registered for use on agricultural crops, treated food and feed crops from research sites and meat (including meat by-products and fat), milk and eggs that may contain residues as a result of research must not be sold.

  • SOR/2014-24, s. 27(F)

Marginal note:Research — subsection 55(2) criteria

 In the case of research that meets the criteria set out in subsection 55(2), treated food and feed crops from research sites and meat (including meat by-products and fat), milk and eggs that may contain residues as a result of research must not be sold unless

  • (a) in the case of research that involves the use of a chemical pest control product, residues do not exceed an amount that would result in the sale of the food being prohibited under section 4 of the Food and Drugs Act; and

  • (b) in the case of research that involves the use of a semiochemical, the research meets the criteria set out in subparagraph 55(2)(c)(viii).

  • SOR/2014-24, s. 28(E)
