In June 1998 the APVMA cancelled the registration of demeton-S-methyl and set a period of two years from 30 June 1998 for remaining stocks of the product to be sold. The APVMA withdrew the maximum residue limit for demeton-S-methyl on January 2001.
The APVMA did not continue with the review as there were no longer any registered products on the market nor maximum residue limits for demeton-S-methyl.
The APVMA will not register any new products for demeton-S-methyl in the future unless it is satisfied that all concerns identified in the nomination phase for demeton-S-methyl have been fully addressed.
There are currently no products containing demeton-S-methyl registered for use in Australia.
