The APVMA’s functions are governed by the Agvet Code. As a regulatory authority, the APVMA must make regulatory decisions based on scientific risk assessments. The1080 initial review findings and proposed regulatory measures are based on the scientific evaluation conducted by the DEH of all scientific information available to this time. The decision about phasing out 1080 in Tasmania is separate and a policy matter for the State. The proposed regulatory measures do not in any way preclude such initiatives from being implemented.
