Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA)

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) is a Canadian government regulatory agency which "protects human health and environment by minimizing risks associated with pest control products while enabling access to pest management tools."  The website is available in English and French and includes contact information for pesticide programs, regulatory information, international
activities information, sustainable pest management data, online publications, related links and a headlines section.  This week's headline refers to the United States - Canada Agreement on Good Laboratory Practices For The Development Of Pesticide Data.

This site, offered by the Chemical and Pharmaceutical (C&P) Press, provides access to the free and subscription-based reference services of their online Crop Protection Reference manual.  The free service provides the most current versions of product labels and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) available to C&P Press.  Documents can be located by brand and company name.  In addition to
the product labels and MSDSs, a subscription allows access to a single source of product summaries (including all sites and pests on which the product is registered, EPA registration information, restricted use information, common name, etc.), worker protection information, DOT shipping information, and SARA Title III reporting information.  A one-month free trial of this subscription
service is available.

Australian Chemical Trauma Alliance

The Australian Chemical Trauma Alliance (ACTA) was formed when it was discovered that there was no organisation that was dedicated exclusively to providing support for chemically affected people. Members have access to the following services: counselling, advice, referrals to appropriate medical and legal practitioners, and introductions to other members for mutual support. In addition, there is a bi-monthly newsletter ("Up Date") and an annual conference. It is a national organisation operated by volunteers with State and regional representatives. Some States feature regular social gatherings. ACTA collaborates with similar organisations in the USA, UK, New Zealand and India, and is continually engaged in lobbying government and other groups about the welfare of members.
