A registration model is essentially a template for registration. Chemical products conforming to the model can be registered at reduced cost because we are already satisfied that they comply with the safety, efficacy and trade criteria.
Registration models are most suited to classes of chemical products that are of low regulatory concern. A registration model is currently available for equine electrolyte products.
While the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) may initiate a registration model, most registration models are proposed by industry groups. We assess the model, and the information supporting it, in much the same way that we assess an application for registration. The benefit of a registration model is that we do not need to revisit that assessment each time that subsequent products conforming to the model are proposed for registration.
If you are interested in developing a registration model for a class of products, contact us for information about how to go about it.
