Will Australia ban chlorpyrifos?


In January 2000, the predecessor of the APVMA, the NRA published an interim review report which in turn placed restrictions on home and garden use of chlorpyrifos. Additional residue findings, led to label changes in 2009. A supplementary toxicological assessment report was completed in April 2017 and a final review of the published science was expected to be published  by the APVMA in August 2018. It appears unlikely that the APVMA will ban Chlorpyrifos.
