Listed chemical products
A listed chemical product is an agvet chemical product prescribed in Schedule 3B – Listed Chemical Products of the Agvet Code Regulations.
Before a group of chemical products can be listed in Schedule 3B the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) is required to prepare a standard for the specific group of products.
In preparing the standard, the APVMA must be satisfied that any chemical product which meets the standard will meet the safety, efficacy, trade and labelling criteria, so an individual assessment is not necessary for a complying product to be registered. Our assessment of a new product focuses purely on whether the product complies with the standard.
The Schedule currently lists certain home swimming pool and spa products and joint health products for dogs and horses. Relevant standards for these products are contained within the relevant Legislative Instrument.
