Details of the Request

Please clarify for me, under what regulation(s) is it good practice, or a requirement in law, for government to advise the public that 1080 is eco-toxic?

While the eco-toxic label has been removed from public warning notices along road sides, I have seen it nailed up on warehouses where 1080 is stored. Please clarify when is the eco-toxic logo required to be used?
