Access to information held by the APVMA

Notice

From 21 July 2014, if you are seeking documents that are related to approved active constituents or registered chemical products, you must apply in writing to make an Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code request (Agvet Code request).

If you submit a Freedom of Information request seeking information related to an approved active constituent or a registered chemical product, it will be processed as an Agvet Code request.

There are two ways to request information from the APVMA. These are:

  1. Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code requests
  2. Freedom of Information requests

Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code requests

A person may submit a request under the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Act 1994 to access any document related to an approved active constituent or registered chemical product.

Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) gives members of the public rights of access to information held by the APVMA, where that information cannot be obtained through an Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Request.
