Data provided to support an application should be presented in English and in a logical format that is reconcilable with the data list (see our data list section and types of data).

The information submitted must be complete. Extracts of experimental reports or studies, or reports or studies with information obscured or hidden by blanking out, will not be accepted as there is no way to determine if the hidden or omitted information is relevant to our consideration of the study or report. Where documents are submitted with sections of information obscured, we may exercise our discretion under section 159 of the Agvet Code to require the full text.

The title used for each piece of information submitted and included in a data list must be the original unedited title given to the item of information by the author.

Overseas assessment packages (e.g. EU dossiers), which include all underlying data, are acceptable for submission; however, you must provide an index or cross-reference document (e.g. an Excel spreadsheet) that clearly identifies each data item, the relevant assessment area (e.g. chemistry, environment) and the page number of the dossier where it can be found.

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority will confirm during preliminary assessment if all the data items have been included in the data list and are summarised/listed in the cross-referencing document referred to above.
