An Environmental Protection Authority decision-making committee has approved an application by ISK New Zealand Ltd for a fungicide that controls various fungal diseases in horticultural crops.
The fungicide Ranman, which contains cyazofamid, will be used by commercial growers and contractors.
The committee thanked everyone who provides the information on which they based their decision.
The hearing provided sufficient information for the decision-making committee to proceed with consideration of the application, leading to the approval decision. The decision is consistent with the purpose of the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act.
The EPA’s role is to decide on applications for hazardous substances under the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act. We put controls in place to manage the risks of hazardous substances to safeguard people and the environment.
