Ability to comply with conditions

If the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) is satisfied that an applicant will be unable to comply with any conditions that we think appropriate to apply to a permit, we must not issue the permit.

For example, if the APVMA applies a condition to a permit for using a herbicide next to a river system requiring the permit holder to notify all landholders downstream, and the river system is 1,000 kilometres long, the permit holder may not be able to show that they can comply with the condition. In such a case, we would not issue the permit.
