Regulatory update #190
New APVMA website from 1 July 2014
A new APVMA website will go live on 1 July 2014. Expanding the regulatory guidelines website we released in May, the new site will now include all the usual information—such as chemical reviews, public consultation, approved actives and application summaries.
Access to material from the old website (including MORAG) which you may need during the transitional year will also be available. The address remains the same: www.apvma.gov.au.

Industry training on 12 and 13 June was well received by those who attended and a feedback survey has been sent out to participants to ensure we continue to provide material which is relevant and timely for users.
The slides and notes from the two training days are available from the website for those who did not have the opportunity to attend the face-to-face training. eLearning topics are in development and are being rolled out progressively.
