Products with very high human toxicity

These products are those with hazard classifications of 6.1A or 6.1B and they must be under the control of a Certified Handler (or locked away securely).  There are also thresholds above which a Location Compliance Certificate will need to be obtained.

This is not a definitive list - products change in formulation and new products enter the market.  This list also excludes VTAs, post harvest washing, soil fumigants and fumigants for other purposes such as storage.  You are advised to check the labels or product safety information for all agrichemicals that you use.
