Dimethoate chemical review


Dimethoate (O,O-dimethyl S-methylcarbamoylmethyl phosphorodithioate) is an organophosphorus insecticide and acaricide used in agriculture and the home garden to control insects and mites.

This work plan has been prepared to fulfill new legislative requirements intended to improve the transparency and predictability of chemical review decisions. Work plans for all current chemical reviews have been prepared in accordance with subsection 31(2) of the Agvet Code and set out the remaining work to be completed and the maximum legislative timeframe by which a decision must be made. The timeframes have been calculated according to the formula specified in Section 78B of the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Regulations 1995. This workplan has been updated to reflect the completion of the reconsideration of dimethoate.
