Access to information held by the APVMA

There are 2 ways to request information from the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA). These are:

  1. Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code requests
  2. Freedom of Information requests

If you are seeking documents related to approved active constituents or registered chemical products, you must apply in writing to make an Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code request (Agvet Code request).

If you submit a Freedom of Information request seeking information related to an approved active constituent/s or a registered chemical product/s, it will be processed as an Agvet Code request.

Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code requests

A person may submit a request under the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Act 1994 to access any document related to an approved active constituent or registered chemical product.

Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 1982 provides the public with a legal right to seek access to documents held by the government, where that information cannot be obtained through an Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Request.

Your feedback will be submitted to the APVMA anonymously. If you require a response, please contact us.
