Publications and Guidelines
The APVMA publishes a range of publications as part of its regulatory activities.
The APVMA Gazette is published fortnightly and contains details of the registration of agricultural and veterinary chemical products and other approvals granted by the APVMA. This includes notices as required by the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code (the Agvet Code) and related legislation, and a range of other regulatory material.
Fact and Information Sheets
APVMA fact and information sheets provide general information (in a printable format) about who we are, what we do and how stakeholders can meet their obligations under the National Registration Scheme.
The APVMA publishes guidelines for applications to register specific types of agricultural and veterinary products.
The APVMA publishes a range of manuals, including manuals for efficacy and safety reviewers, a manual for the Electronic Application and Registration System (EARS) and the Manual of Requirements and Guidelines (MORAG).
Better Regulation reform has acted as a catalyst to look critically at how we explain our policies, requirements and decision-making processes to stakeholders. We are developing a comprehensive risk framework—Risk Compendium—that will help stakeholders to better understand how we assess and manage risk across our regulatory activities. Many of the APVMA manuals and guidelines will be reviewed and redrafted in the process of developing the Risk Compendium.
In addition to the Annual Report, the APVMA also publishes a report of adverse experiences each year. Other reports that are significant to the activities of the APVMA are also contained in this section.
