2006 September APVMA Conference

The APVMA (Australian Pesticides & Veterinary Medicines Authority) recently convened a conference to discuss the merits of making recapture of methyl bromide mandatory.

The conference was attended by key industry players including industry representatives, CSIRO, AQIS and other government bodies.

The APVMA is also currently considering changes to labelling for methyl bromide. Methyl Bromide is being reconsidered because current labels contain uses that are no longer permitted under the Montreal Protocol, and may pose a risk to the environment.
