Before you apply for a permit
An application for a permit is required to be made through the APVMA portal. Supporting information, such as a dossier, can currently be provided separately in paper form.
The portal is an online system where holders and nominated agents can submit and check the status of their applications and transact with the APVMA in a secure environment.
We must consider certain matters in determining an application for a permit. For example, in determining an application for a permit to use a registered product on a minor crop species, we would consider whether the product would continue to meet the safety criteria, and whether there are reasonable grounds for not making an application to vary the registration or label approval in relation to the product. We would also consider whether the application meets the application requirements and the proposed holder of the permit can comply with the conditions imposed.
A permit approval cannot be varied, as that would affect the validity of the previous assessment. If you want to vary a permit approval, you must apply for a new permit. You will need to surrender the original permit before a new permit is approved.
