On 1 November 1994 the APVMA (then the NRA) invited the public to nominate active constituents, chemical products or labels for consideration for review. Of the 600 chemical nominations, 80 were included in the priority candidate review list published in the Gazette on 2 May 1995, including carbofuran active constituents, chemical products and labels.
Carbofuran is an insecticide and nematicide that was registered for use only in certain states of Australia. It is a Schedule 7 substance in the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Drugs and Poisons (which means that it must carry the signal heading ‘Dangerous Poison’). Carbofuran was nominated for review because of human health concerns. Carbofuran has had limited recent use in Australia.
The registration of the final remaining products containing the active constituent carbofuran and the labels for containers of those products have been voluntarily cancelled at the request of the holder in December 2019. As there are no longer any registered products containing the active constituent carbofuran, the APVMA considers that there is no longer any basis for the chemical reconsideration.
