Active constituents not requiring evaluation

Active constituents approved under section 14A of the Agvet Code

The following list generally includes chemicals that may not have been primarily developed as agricultural chemicals or are of low significance—such as compounds that change the physical properties of a product and thus do not have an extensive package of data readily available. Active constituents in this list do not have an active constituent approval number and are approved under section 14A of the Agvet Code (external site) .

The record of approved active constituents for chemical products is updated on a regular basis and updates are also published in the APVMA Gazette.

Below is the list of active constituents approved under section 14A of the Agvet Code as at 24 December 2015. The list does not contain updates to the existing approvals in the record and any new approvals from 24 December 2015.

It should be noted that agricultural and veterinary chemical products containing active constituents included in this list must be registered by the APVMA before these products can be legally sold, distributed or used in Australia.
