Pesticides Act 1999 No 80
Current version for 15 January 2016 to date (accessed 23 June 2017 at 00:25)
Note.The Code set out in the Schedule to the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Act 1994 of the Commonwealth (the Agvet Code) is the basis of a uniform legislative scheme for the approval and registration of agricultural chemical products (eg pesticides) and veterinary chemical products. Section 5 of the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals (New South Wales) Act 1994 provides that the Agvet Code applies as law of New South Wales.
The Agvet Code controls the manufacture and supply (eg sale) of agricultural and veterinary chemical products. The control of the use of those chemical products (described in this Act as “pesticides”) is generally a matter for the States.
This Act provides the basis for the control of the use of pesticides in New South Wales.
This Act should be read in conjunction with the Agvet Code (particularly the definitions in that Code).
