Haloxyfop ethoxyethyl ester is not registered as plant protection product in the country. By the Ministry of Agriculture, production and import of Haloxyfop ethoxyethyl ester were banned in 2010 and its use was banned in 2011.
The general framework for the prohibition and restriction of plant protection products, including pesticides, for the purpose of protecting human health and the environment is determined by the Veterinary Services, Plant Health, Food and Feed Law.

The prohibition process is done by not granting a license to hazardous active substances for manufacture, use and placing on the market or canceling the existing license.
