Regulatory Affairs Consulting: Australian Pesticides & Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA)

The APVMA is a regulatory body that evaluates and approves agricultural and veterinary chemical products prior to their retail sale within Australia. Chemical products for agricultural or veterinary use must be registered with the APVMA prior to Australian retail sale regardless of the country of manufacture.

The Canberra based APVMA, ensures that the afore-mentioned products comply with Australian Standards, and that they are safe and effective when used as directed. Extensive data is required to register a new product or when there is a major change in the formulation of a previously registered product. Each agricultural and veterinary chemical product is required to conform to the APVMA Labelling Code and must contain specific text as appropriate. ChemSkill consultants can assist you with product registration requirements, including the labelling of the product, and compliance to the relevant legislation.
