Evidential certificates

The APVMA may issue an evidential certificate for use in legal proceedings.

An evidential certificate can be issued under section 69ES or section 70 of the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals (Administration) Act (Admin Act), or section 149 of the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Act 1994 (Agvet Code).

The APVMA has developed a form to assist with the provision of relevant details. You can email Compliance and Monitoring to obtain the relevant form. The form assists us in determining whether an evidential certificate can be issued, depending on the situation.

You will not be charged a fee for the issue of evidential certificates. We will assess all requests in a timely and efficient manner and endeavor to process your request within 20 working days.
