Regulatory Update #257

5 September 2017

Tailored guidance for applicants now available

We’re making registration easier with tailored guidance material that gives you the information you need to lodge the right application, with the right data and supporting evidence to meet APVMA criteria before entering our online services portal.

The first modules of tailored guidance material are available now. We’ll be gradually releasing more guidance material for other common types of new product and product variation applications.

By improving applicant guidance material we aim to make the registration process smoother and more efficient.

Additional guidance material is currently being developed in consultation with industry to give examples of the further potential for timeframe reductions.
