Listed standards for low risk products

We’re simplifying registration for some types of products by developing standards that outline our requirements for meeting the safety, efficacy, trade and labelling criteria for a chemical product.

This means that applications that meet a certain standard can be processed faster, as the only assessment required is whether the product complies with the standard or not.

We’re currently developing a standard for antifouling paints. We’re also looking at other products that may be suitable for future standards development.

From time to time we’ll invite feedback from interested stakeholders on proposed new standards.

Check our consultation page for any consultations that may be open.

This is one of our business improvement projects being delivered with funding from the Australian Government’s Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper to improve access to agricultural and veterinary chemicals for farmers and growers.

The work is expected to be completed by mid-2018.
