Key messages

  • 1080 is fluoroacetic acid, a Schedule 7 substance that is used as a bait for the control of some large animal pests.
  • In its raw form (that is, not within a ready-to-use bait), 1080 cannot be obtained without a licence or a permit issued by the department.
  • The department may need to inspect premises before issuing or amending a licence.

If you wish to apply for a licence to manufacture and supply 1080 (fluoroacetic acid), and do not wish to supply any other substance requiring a licence, then in addition to completing a poisons control plan there are also different application forms and responsible person forms to complete. These are different to regular licence and permit application forms (see 'Downloads' at the bottom of the page):

  • How to complete 1080 application form
  • Licence application form – manufacture and sell or supply by retail
  • Licence application form – manufacture and sell or supply by wholesale.
