The Environmental Protection Authority’s Decision-Making Committee (DMC) responsible for hearing the reassessment of methyl bromide has considered a further application from STIMBR for a time waiver for the introduction of recapture technology. The waiver of the 28 October 2020 deadline UNTIL 28 November 2021 is needed as the DMC has not yet decided on the reassessment of methyl bromide.
The EPA accepted an application from STIMBR seeking a modified reassessment of methyl bromide in April 2019.
The DMC’s decision on the waiver is supplementary to the more significant reassessment being undertaken into methyl bromide recapture.
