This is Edition 1/2017 of the Handbook of First Aid Instructions, Safety Directions, Warning Statements and General Safety Precautions for Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals, or as it is more generally known, the FAISD handbook. The FAISD handbook is updated quarterly (March/June/September/December) and is published on the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) website where it is available free of charge.
The FAISD handbook is a consolidation of the advice provided to the APVMA up to the date of amendment. The data on which these recommendations are based has been supplied largely by companies and persons seeking approval and registration of products from the APVMA. The recommendations are intended to provide guidance to these parties in the approval of labels for agricultural and veterinary chemical products.
