The registrants of grain protectants containing bioresmethrin voluntarily withdrew the registrations of their products before the review was completed.
Because the registrations for bioresmethrin grain protectants had been withdrawn, the APVMA did not continue with the review. The APVMA withdrew the temporary MRLs for food-producing animals in 2003.
The remaining bioresmethrin insecticides are not registered or labelled for use on animals or in animal housing situations. Therefore, it is unlikely that these products will cause residue violations in livestock and prejudice Australia’s export trade.
