Australian industry bemoans agchem reform bill passage

The Australian industry association, CropLife Australia, has decried the passage of the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Legislation Amendment Bill by the Australian Senate. The association had urged the Senate to veto the legislation (Agrow No 664, p 21). "There are a number of positive reforms included in the Bill, but the good components are completely outweighed by 287 new pages of misguided and poorly targeted extra regulation," says CropLife Australia chief executive officer Matthew Cossey. "The result will be a less efficient, less responsive regulator that is not equipped to meet its mandate."
