The APVMA's regulatory activities

The APVMA regulates agricultural and veterinary chemicals in line with responsibilities described in the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals (Administration) Act 1992 and the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Act 1994.

Access to safe and effective agricultural and veterinary chemicals

Because of the potential risks from the incorrect use of agvet chemicals, the Australian Government plays a key role in the regulation of pesticides and veterinary medicines.

Ongoing compliance to ensure safety and efficacy

Part of the APVMA's role and responsibility is to monitor and enforce compliance with the Agvet Code and other legislation we administer.

The Record and Register

When an active constituent is approved, an agvet product is registered, or a label for an agvet product is approved, the APVMA records some of the information.
