We're pleased to announce the second release of the APVMA mobile app which includes a new feature allowing access to the APVMA's permits database.

The mobile app was seen as a world-first when released late last year and with the inclusion of the permits module in this latest release, it will have even greater relevance for farmers and environmental managers, particularly those reliant on minor use authorisations in the horticultural and minor grains industries.

You can search for registered products that are available to treat a specific disease or pest—and now, if you can't find anything suitable, you can check to see if there is a permit available authorising 'off-label' use of products or chemicals on your crops or animals.

Compared to our online databases, the app provides a radically simpler, intuitive user interface that gives you real time access to the APVMA's agvet chemical registration and permit databases.

Chemical users—farmers, vets, householders, industry, chemical manufacturers and researchers—can find information on product formulations, active ingredients, withholding periods, pack sizes, pests treated, hosts treated, states where the product is registered and poison schedule information.

You can review product labels (to check correct use of the chemical on the go), you can search for products in new, simplified ways (such as by category, alphabetically or using 'did you mean?' searches) and you can view permit documents detailing allowed off-label authorisations.

Once a search has been completed, you can save the search for future reference, or email the results to others.

Advanced search features also let you search for products that may have been suspended or had their registration cancelled.

The APVMA mobile app is currently only available for iPhone (and it will display on iPad). An alternative solution is in development for other smartphone and mobile device users.
