Industry Information and Education Sessions—Melbourne registrations open

The second in the series of six Industry Information and Education Sessions will be held in Melbourne on 17 August 2015 and registrations open this week. Full details are available on the events page on our website.

Transitional arrangements for applications received before 1 July 2014

Applications received before 1 July 2014 were subject to transitional arrangements for a period of one year.

From 1 July 2015, any unfinalised applications will be considered under the provisions of the current agvet legislation.

View more information on transitional arrangements.

Closing EARS

The old evaluation and registration system—known as EARS—will be closed down on 1 July 2015. Applications received before 1 July 2014 and which remain unfinalised on 1 July 2015 will be moved across to APVMA online services.

This means people will be able to see all their applications in one place. If you are already using the APVMA online services just log in as normal to see pre–1 July 2014 applications—you do not need to do anything.

For people who haven’t used APVMA online services before, user IDs are the same as for EARS and passwords can be reset by following the prompts on the log in screen.

Reminder: Pre-application assistance—review finalisation and next steps

The review into pre-application assistance is complete. We are now seeking industry input to co-design new pre-application assistance processes to assist people in making and preparing applications.

Consultation closes 3 July 2015.
