Australia to restrict dichlorvos

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has called for restrictions on the use of the organophosphate insecticide, dichlorvos, due to lack of data and concerns over health and environmental risks. The APVMA forerunner, the National Registration Authority, issued a draft review on dichlorvos in 2000 ( Agrow No 358, p 22). However, after the publication of the review, the authorities became aware of “a large package” of toxicological and exposure studies in the US that had not been submitted. Risk assessments have subsequently been revised in light of the extra data.
