(b) the directions on the experimental label.
63. A research establishment must keep records that contain all of the following information for each research project:
(a) the name and quantity of every pest control product used;
(b) the names of the researchers and cooperators;

(d) a description of the application methods; and
(e) the test data generated.
Import for Research Purposes
Marginal note:Conditions for import
64. A research establishment may import an unregistered pest control product for the purpose of conducting research if
(a) the product is imported in accordance with section 36; and
(b) the quantity being imported is not more than that specified in a research authorization certificate or research notification certificate, or, if the quantity is not so specified, the amount that is necessary to conduct the research.
Unused Pest Control Products
Marginal note:Unregistered products
65. A research establishment must return to the manufacturer any unused unregistered pest control products.
Marginal note:Registered products
66. 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.
Marginal note:Researchers and cooperators only
67. 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
68. 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.
