In Australia, there are currently a number of developments occurring with regard to management and regulation of CCA-treated timber by authorities with responsibility for CCA use and management. The CCA preservative is approved and regulated by Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) and is only available to commercial treatment plants. National standards relating to the treatment and use of treated timber are set by Standards Australia.
