Import and export

Only registered products and approved active constituents can be imported without the need for further approval. The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) may authorise the importation of unregistered and unapproved agricultural and veterinary (agvet) chemicals.

Australian exporters of unregistered agvet chemical products and unapproved active constituents require an export permit from the APVMA to legalise possession of these products or actives in Australia for the purpose of export.

Australian exporters of agvet chemical products and active constituents may also be required to obtain a certificate of export from the APVMA before other countries will accept the importation of these products.
