All efforts have been made to provide the most current, complete and accurate information on these permits. However, we recommend that you confirm the details of these permits at the APVMA website.

Users are advised that while a pesticide can be applied legally under an APVMA minor use permit, there can be a significant delay until the maximum residue limit (MRL) gazetted by the APVMA is adopted in the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.

Until this occurs the MRL may not be recognised and a zero tolerance may be imposed for residues of the pesticide resulting from its use according to the APVMA permit.

Please be aware that in the absence of a MRL in the Food Standards Code, the use of the pesticide according to the permit may result in the suspension of the produce in the marketplace. Please check the FSANZ website or the Australian Government ComLaw website to confirm if there are MRLs established by the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.

Please consult APVMA documentation before applying any product to your crop.

If an adverse experience occurs as a result of using a permit, please fill out a Non-Performance Reporting Form for Horticultural Pesticides. To download a Non-Performance Reporting Form for Horticultural Pesticides, please click here.
