Analysts can assist the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) with various aspects of chemical testing relevant to assessment, approval and compliance functions.

The APVMA may conduct analysis of chemical substances under the Agvet Code or following the seizure of samples through an investigation or monitoring activities.

The role of analysts

Analysts may assist with the provision of clear evidence about chemical substances. Analysts also conduct chemical testing required by the APVMA under section 99 of the Agvet Code.

When the analysis of chemicals is required, analysis must be performed by an APVMA Approved Analyst. The APVMA or the holder can arrange the testing; however, the cost may be borne by either the APVMA or the holder, depending on the circumstances.

Becoming an Approved Analyst

To become an APVMA Approved Analyst you must meet certain criteria.

Appointments as an APVMA Approved Analyst are made under Section 69G of the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals (Administration) Act 1992.
