Regulatory update #171

9 May 2013

New! Permits now available on our mobile app

As you may be aware, last year we released our world-first agvet mobile app, which makes information about agricultural and veterinary chemicals registered in Australia instantly accessible to people on the move.

We are pleased to announce that an updated version—which includes access to the APVMA permits database—of the APVMA mobile app has now been released. With this new module incorporated, you can now find complete information about registered chemicals and permit approvals for your particular needs—and save or share that information with others.

The updated app is available for free download for iPhone and iPad users. If you downloaded the original app, you should be alerted to download the new version.

If you don’t have it installed, you can do so by visiting the App Store and searching for ‘APVMA’.

More information is available from the APVMA website or by email.
