Pesticide cypermethrin in or on various commodities (ICS Codes: 65.020, 65.100, 67.040, 67.080

Proposed Maximum Residue Limit: Cypermethrin (PMRL2019-09). Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 6 and 7

The objective of the notified document PMRL2019-09 is to consult on the listed maximum residue limits (MRLs) for cypermethrin that have been proposed by Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA).

MRL (ppm)1                Raw Agricultural Commodity (RAC) and/or Processed Commodity

2.0                          Cherries (crop subgroup 12-09A); lowbush blueberries

0.82                                Bushberries (crop subgroup 13-07B, except lowbush blueberries);      caneberries (crop subgroup 13-07A)

0.32,3                              Low growing berries (crop subgroup 13-07G, except lowbush   blueberries)

1 ppm = parts per million

2 Although lowbush blueberry is a commodity in both crop subgroup 13-07B and 13-07G, the proposed crop subgroup MRLs do not apply to lowbush blueberries, as a separate MRL is being proposed for this commodity.

3 As strawberries are included in crop subgroup 13-07G, it is proposed that the currently established MRL of 0.2 ppm for strawberries be replaced by the MRL of 0.3 ppm for the commodities in crop subgroup 13-07G. 

MRLs are proposed for each commodity included in the listed crop groupings in accordance with the Residue Chemistry Crop Groups webpage ( in the Pesticides and Pest Management section of the website.
