CropLife Australia always seeks to constructively engage in any public debates or discussions that lead to better-informed parliamentarians and consumers and increased community confidence in the regulation and importance of crop protection innovations. Following the Four Corners program last night, there have been calls for a Senate Inquiry into the independence of Australia’s pesticides regulator. CropLife does not believe there is any basis that would warrant any inquiry, Senate Committee or otherwise, into the independence of the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA).
Following tonight’s Four Corners program, CropLife Australia encourages all observers and commentators to refer and give primacy to the independent scientific experts regarding glyphosate, instead of continuing to inadvertently perpetrate misinformation and unnecessarily escalate community concern.
