  • (a) the name and quantity of every pest control product used;

  • (b) the names of the researchers and cooperators;

  • (c) the locations of the research sites;

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

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
