Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
The Pesticides Review Committee was established in ?1964, after an enquiry into pesticides set up by the Premier Sir Henry Bolte. This Committee replaced an existing inter-departmental Committee, which had functioned within the Health Department.

The function of this Committee was to advise the Premier on any matter relating to pesticides and relevant legislation, to review and approve proposals by Departments and public authorities for mass use of pesticides, to consult with persons or organisations engaged in the manufacture, packaging, sale, distribution and use of pesticides.

This Committee reported to the Premier.

The work of Committee was of continuing nature including :

Reviewing all aspects of pesticide registration, labelling and use, and provision of advice on these matters, approval of all new chemicals and new uses of chemicals to the Director-General of Agriculture and the Health Commission of Victoria.

Large scale spray operations by government bodies in the State were reviewed and advice tendered.

The Committee either initiated or assisted in arranging amendments to pesticides legislations.

This Committee was apparently abolished in 1982.
