Call for information on fluazinam

2022-10-27

We are seeking information on how fluazinam is used in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Fluazinam is an active ingredient commonly used to control fungal diseases in grapes, potatoes, vegetable brassicas, field tomatoes, and onions.

We established grounds for reassessment on 7 December 2021 based on significant new information about the effects of the substance. Fluazinam is currently going through a renewal process in the European Union.

This is an opportunity for all interested parties and stakeholders to provide us with information on how fluazinam products are manufactured, imported, sold, and applied. We also want to know the risks, benefits, and effects on human health and the environment that come from fluazinam products.

We want to hear from growers, agriculture workers, iwi/hapū representatives, suppliers, manufacturers, researchers, councils, members of the public, and anyone else who wants to participate.

The submission period closes on Monday 14 November 2022 at 11.59 pm.
