The Environmental Protection Authority is calling for submissions on an application by Connovation Limited to import coumatetralyl and cholecalciferol to be used as manufacturing concentrates in the formulation of C + C block or pellet baits.
C + C block or pellet baits are used as poisons to control possums, via hand-laid bait stations.
The applicant states that coumatetralyl and cholecalciferol have been identified as cost-effective alternatives to other pest poisons and are less persistent in the environment.
Submissions close on 14 November 2012.
