SECTION 15 REGULATORY INFORMATION

This product has been registered by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA). In

granting registration to any product, the APVMA has exercised its legislative responsibility to ensure that the product

is suitably formulated and properly labelled and, when used according to instructions is:

safe to the host, the user, consumers and the environment;

efficacious (that is, the product does the job it claims it shall do); and

not unduly prejudicial to trade.

The APVMA uses the services of a number of Australian and State government agencies as advisers to help with

some of these evaluations of applications for registration of agricultural and veterinary chemical products. These

include:

the Office of Chemical Safety (OCS) of the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing which:

evaluates and reports on toxicology and metabolism studies; proposes first aid and safety directions;

determines poison schedule classifications; and establishes acceptable daily intakes (ADIs) and acute

reference doses (ARfD); and

evaluates the occupational health and safety aspects of an application and recommends safety directions and

occupational controls on use and advises on a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS);

the Commonwealth Department of the Environment and Heritage (DEH) which evaluates environmental data

and recommends appropriate use controls and instructions for the product that will protect the environment; and

State and Territory departments responsible for agricultural and primary industries which evaluate and reports

on efficacy and target crop or animal safety data for new agricultural chemicals and new uses of registered

products. In some cases the APVMA contracts this work out to other agencies such as universities, the CSIRO

or to other experts.

Although all ingredients appear in the Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (AICS), they have not been

assessed by NICNAS (National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme)
