Making it easier to submit and use international assessments

21 March 2017

The use of international assessments can reduce time for applicants on reformatting a regulatory dossier specifically for Australia, and reduce the amount of technical report writing by the APVMA. If you are considering submitting an international assessment to support a future application, it’s important that you read, understand and follow the advice in our updated guidance material.

We accept international data, standards and assessments as part of the approval, registration and chemical review (reconsideration) processes and will use this data, where ever possible, to inform our regulatory decision. International assessments must fulfil certain criteria, and the use of international assessments does not remove the APVMA’s need to undertake a scientific evaluation of the risks to human health and environment from the proposed use of a pesticide or veterinary medicine.

See our Guidance for applicants – submission of international data, standards and assessments for all details about assessment criteria, data use, accepted organisations and more.
