The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has issued a permit extension to Grain Producers Australia (GPA) for the supply of certain mouse baits containing 50g/kg zinc phosphide (permit PER90799).
As part of approving a permit extension, the APVMA requested new requirements for permit holders to provide them with evidence of users complying with permit conditions.
In response to the APVMA’s requests, GPA has now implemented a new stewardship training course and reporting processes, in GPA Training, allowing a one-year extension (for 2023) of the permit.
Growers and applicators will need to complete the stewardship training and reporting in order to purchase and maintain their access to ZP50 products.
For more information about the requirements, you can read the FAQs on the Grain Producers Australia website.
To get started, log in or join GPA Training and follow the steps.
