When an active constituent is approved, an agricultural or veterinary (agvet) product is registered, or a label for an agvet product is approved, the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) records certain particulars (the relevant particulars) on the:
- Record of Approved Active Constituents for Chemical Products (the Record)
- Register of Agricultural and Veterinary Chemical Products (the Register), or
- relevant APVMA file.
The Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code scheduled to the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Act 1994 requires us to keep the Record and Register in 2 parts, one containing confidential commercial information and the other containing other information. To support transparent and effective regulation, we make the components of the Record and the Register that do not contain confidential commercial information publicly available. The PubCRIS database is publicly available.
We also have a permits database, which lists minor use and emergency use permits that we have issued. The permits database is publicly available.
