Phenothiazine review

Status: Review Completed

The APVMA began a Special Review of Phenothiazine because of concerns over the lack of toxicological and residues data on which Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) could be established.

The APVMA completed the Special Review of Phenothiazine in 30 October 1996 but did not publish a final report due to the small number of registrants involved. In the report the APVMA recommended canceling the registrations of phenothiazine products (Olsson’s Wormolas Block, CCD Formula 18 and Clifton’s Kill-Worm) effective from 31 December 1996. Read a full history of the review.
