Australia extends fipronil review

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) is to extend its review of the insecticide, fipronil, to cover environmental concerns. The APVMA began its review of fipronil in 2003 following reports of adverse health effects on humans and animals, primarily related to veterinary uses. In preliminary review findings issued last year, it recommended the continued registration of fipronil with amended safety directions and re-entry intervals ( Agrow No 619, p 19).
