In February 2003, the APVMA began a review of maldison because of concerns about its toxicity and human health and safety. The review was to provide the APVMA with information to determine whether the existing uses of maldison should continue in Australia.
In 2003, the APVMA released the Maldison review scope document, which outlined the information needed to conduct a scientific assessment of maldison and included a call for public submissions. The period for public comments on the scope of the review and the submission of information for the review closed on 3 June 2003.
