Compliance and monitoring
If you are involved with registered agricultural or veterinary (agvet) chemical products in Australia, or approved actives, you will need to comply with the Agvet Code and other legislation. Your compliance with the Agvet Code and other legislation helps protect the health and safety of people, animals, plants and the environment—as well as protecting Australia's trade interests.
Our objective is to help protect the health and safety of people, animals, plants and the environment—while protecting Australia’s trade interests.
This means manufacturers, holders, suppliers, wholesalers, advertisers and retailers of agvet chemical products all have various compliance responsibilities. It also means the APVMA has responsibilities to monitor compliance—and when necessary undertake enforcement activities.
