Chloroxuron Review

Status: Review Completed

In August 1994 the APVMA (formerly the NRA) reviewed the use of chloroxuron because of concerns over the lack of toxicological data.

The APVMA completed the Special Review of Chloroxuron in September 1994 but did not publish a final report. The APVMA recommended canceling the registration of all chloroxuron products. Read a full history of the review.
