Reassessment of hazard classifications
We sought your views on a reassessment of the hazard classifications of an agricultural herbicide and an industrial chemical.
Nufarm Limited has applied for a reassessment of Sprinter 700DS - an agricultural herbicide, and monomethylamine - an industrial chemical used as a chemical intermediate in various industries and in scientific laboratories.
The application is for changes to be made to the substances' hazard classifications. This is called a modified reassessment.
Grounds to reassess Sprinter 700DS and monomethylamine were granted in November 2018 because of significant new information about the productive/developmental hazard classification of the substances. This was due to the availability of a new study data on the monomethylamine component.
The public submission period for this reassessment application closed on 13 March 2019. The submissions are currently being considered.
Further updates on the next steps in this application process will be posted on this page in due course.
