RMD-22-01: Risk management document – proposed amendments to risk management of light brown apple moth (Epiphyas postvittana). Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 11 and 12

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is evaluating its regulatory approach to Epiphyas postvittana (light brown apple moth).

A risk management document has been prepared discussing:

·         background information related to the pest;

·         a summary of risk assessments;

·        pest management considerations; and

·        proposals related to Canada's regulatory approach to the pest.

The risk management document presents two options for managing the risk to Canada posed by E. postvittana. The approach recommended by the CFIA is to continue regulating the pest by applying phytosanitary import requirements to commodities that present the greatest risk of introducing the pest to Canada. Stakeholders will have an opportunity to provide comments on the proposals. Comments will be taken into consideration by the CFIA when making the risk management decision. Once a risk management decision has been finalized, the document will be revised to include information related to the decision, and any resulting next steps for changes to phytosanitary import requirements. The finalized document will be notified as an addendum to this notification.
