Regulatory update #230
Public consultation on use of international data, assessments and standards
The APVMA has developed two user guides, which are now available for public consultation, following applicant feedback on the draft international data, assessments, standards and decisions policy document in 2015.
During consultation on the policy document, applicants said they wanted more detail on how this policy would work for both agricultural and veterinary products. As a result, two user guides have been developed to explain how this policy will work in practice:
- Use of international data, standards and assessments: a guide for agricultural chemical products
- Use of international data, standards and assessments: a guide for veterinary chemical products
The Australian Government has set the guiding principle that if a system, service or product has been approved under a trusted international standard or risk assessment, Australian regulators should not impose any additional requirements unless it can be demonstrated that there is a good reason to do so.
Consultation on the user guides will be open until 3 June 2016.
Crop groupings project—phase one underway
Industry and community submissions received for the proposed crop groups consultation process are now available on the APVMA website. The APVMA thanks all respondents for their submissions which will assist in finalising phase one of the crop group lists. Phase one is expected to be completed by the end of June 2016.
The APVMA will be conducting a further round of consultation for proposed representative crops before the end of 2016.
