Procymidone final regulatory decision

11 October 2022

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has published the final regulatory decision (FRD) for the reconsideration of procymidone, a fungicide used for the control of fungal diseases in various broadacre and horticultural crops, and ornamental plants.

The FRD for procymidone has:

1. retained procymidone as a safe and effective fungicide for use by Australian broadacre, horticulture and ornamental plant industries
2. affirmed the active constituent approval
3. varied and affirmed the product registrations and label approvals with:

  • the deletion of instructions for use on faba beans and navy beans due to insufficient data to quantify the potential residues in treated crops and the potential risk to trade
  • restriction of uses on potatoes, limiting the use to 4 applications per crop and increasing the harvest withholding period from 9 days to 21 days to align with the supporting data held by the APVMA
  • the removal of state-based restrictions on use
  • additional spray-drift restraints to protect the safety of people, animals and the environment
  • other minor label updates to make the instructions contemporary.

The APVMA has determined, under section 81(3) of the Agvet Code, that products bearing the previously approved labels may be supplied for 2 years from the date of the decision. After the 2-year phase-out period ends products must be supplied with a new approved label.

Products bearing the previous label approval numbers must not be supplied after 11 October 2024.
