This consultation closed on 28 February 2014

Consultation period

31 January 2014 to 28 February 2014

Comments are now invited on the draft guideline VICH GL52 (Bioequivalence) Blood level Bioequivalence Study.

The APVMA is seeking submissions from stakeholders to input to step 4 (external site) of the VICH process. If the APVMA proposes to adopt the final guidelines further consultation will be undertaken.


VICH (the International Cooperation on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Veterinary Medicinal Products Program – see http://www.vichsec.org/), is aimed at harmonising technical requirements for veterinary product registration and was launched in Paris in April 1996 as a cooperative effort between members of the regulatory authorities and the veterinary chemical industry from the European Union, U S A, and Japan.

VICH draws on the experience of the human pharmaceutical harmonisation initiative, ICH. The regulatory authorities of Australia and New Zealand have observer status on the VICH Steering Committee. The APVMA adopts VICH guidelines where it is possible and appropriate to do so.
