The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has released the Proposed Regulatory Decisions and Review Technical Report for the reconsideration of 2,4-D herbicide.
“We make decisions based on credible scientific evidence and have been taking progressive action on 2,4-D for many years,” said APVMA Chief Executive Officer, Dr Chris Parker.
“It’s important to get the science right, and with the publication of the APVMA spray drift management guidelines earlier this year the proposed regulatory decisions for 2,4-D can now be finalised.
“The release of the Proposed Regulatory Decisions opens the three month consultation period.”
Once the consultation period has ended and the final regulatory decision has been published, the APVMA will provide holders with guidance on what they need to do to comply with the outcome of the chemical review.
Interested parties can make a submission during the consultation period (24 October 2019 to 31 January 2020).
