Antifouling paints ban 
Don't forget, antifouling paints containing the active ingredients diuron and octhilinone can no longer be imported or manufactured in New Zealand after 1 July 2017. This follows the 2013 EPA reassessment of a group of antifouling paints previously approved under the HSNO Act. For more information read our fact sheet.

Regulating goods in transit
We are calling for submissions on proposals for regulating hazardous substances onboard New Zealand and foreign-flagged vessels and aircraft which are in transit through New Zealand to another jurisdiction. The proposals are part of a package of changes made to the HSNO Act under the Government's Health and Safety Reform. You can view the consultation document here.

The reform will see many rules relating to the management of hazardous substances in the workplace move from the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) Act (administered by the EPA) into the new Health and Safety at Work (HSW) Act (administered by WorkSafe New Zealand).

Consultation to reassess fungicides Luna Privilege and Luna Sensation  
We are seeking the public's views on an application from Bayer New Zealand Ltd for reassessment of its products Luna Privilege and Luna Sensation. Bayer wants to increase significantly the maximum application rate per hectare for both products, and allow them to be applied to crops more frequently. You can view the consultation document here.
