What to include in your permit application

The APVMA expects applicants to submit applications that are complete, free of errors, and accompanied by the required information and the prescribed fee (if applicable). Where relevant, applications need to contain information that satisfies us that they meet the statutory criteria (safety, efficacy and trade).

We expect applicants to fully consider the regulatory responsibilities of obtaining a permit prior to submitting an application.

We also expect applicants to familiarise themselves with our application requirements and adhere to the APVMA's customer service charter so that high-quality applications are made.

You will find it useful to refer to this section as you complete the permit application.
