§ The Countess of Mar
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the bodies responsible for licensing organophosphate products are in contact with their counterparts in the USA, Australia and New Zealand, and whether the regulations for the use of the same or similar products are applied uniformly in each of these countries.
The Pesticides Safety Directorate exchanges information with the pesticide regulatory authorities in the USA, Australia and New Zealand, as does the Veterinary Medicines Directorate with the bodies responsible for the authorisation of veterinary medicines in those countries. Application of the regulations for the use of such products in each of those countries is a matter for the regulatory authorities concerned.
