The reconsideration of approvals and registrations relating to dimethoate and omethoate—review scope document

The APVMA has initiated its reconsideration of the approvals of the active constituent dimethoate, the registrations of products containing dimethoate and the approvals of associated labels. The APVMA has similarly initiated its reconsideration of the approvals of the active constituent omethoate, the registrations of products containing omethoate and the approvals of associated labels. The reconsideration of each of these related chemicals will be undertaken in conjunction as the reasons for review relate to similar concerns, as both chemicals have similar chemistry and the review scopes are the same. This document defines the scope of the matters of concern to the APVMA, outlines the kind of information the APVMA requires to conduct comprehensive scientific assessments of dimethoate and omethoate and invites submissions from the public.
