Nabam review

Status: Review Completed

The former Australian Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Council (AAVCC) revoked the clearance for nabam on 30 June 1990 following its decision to phase out a number of ethylene-bis-dithiocarbamate fungicides (EBDCs) based on the concerns over the lack of toxicological and residues data.

There are no Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) for nabam.
