In June 2004 the APVMA released the Draft Review Report for all uses of carbaryl, which recommended the cancellation of some use patterns and the tightening of restrictions on others
After the release of the Draft Report (June 2004) for carbaryl, it was determined that further assessments were required for the agricultural products. As a result the APVMA split the carbaryl review into two parts, with Part 1 considering home garden, home veterinary, poultry and domestic uses, and the Part 2 considering agricultural uses.
Carbaryl review—Part 1: Uses of carbaryl in home garden, home veterinary, poultry and domestic situations
In April 2006 the APVMA released the Review Findings for Part 1 of the Carbaryl review which outlined the APVMA findings for Part 1 of the review, including new information or assessments relevant to Part 1 of the review that followed the publication of the Draft Findings in 2004.
Carbaryl review—Part 2: Uses of carbaryl in agricultural situations
In July 2006, the APVMA released the Carbaryl preliminary review findings report: Part 2 and associated Technical report. The APVMA found that some uses, application methods and formulations of products containing carbaryl posed a potential risk to the safety of people.
The APVMA proposed cancelling some uses and application methods, strengthening engineering controls to protect users, and including stronger safety directions and warning statements on product labels.
