The Australian Government has published two new spray drift guidance documents to assist registrants with applications to update spray drift instructions, apply for a new spray drift risk assessment, or apply for consideration of new drift reduction technology (DRT).

The new guidance documents form part of the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority’s (APVMA) current spray drift policy, which was introduced in July 2019, and provides practical examples to assist registrants in understanding how the APVMA will implement the policy.
