Non-performance or Adverse Experience Reporting
A ‘non-performance’ or Adverse Experience is an unintended or unexpected effect on plants, plant products, animals, human beings or the environment, including injury, sensitivity reactions or lack of efficacy associated with the use of an agricultural chemical product(s) when used according to label (or permit) directions.
If you believe you have had a non-performance or an adverse experience following use under a minor use permit, please submit a report online at: AERP AgVet Online Report System (apvma.gov.au)
Permits, maximum residue limits and the food standards code
Users are advised that while the pesticide can be applied legally under the APVMA minor use permit, there can be a significant delay until the 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 an 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 Federal Register of Legislation website: https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/F2023C00814 to confirm if there are MRL established by the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.
