Information for veterinarians
Parts of the Agvet Code apply directly to veterinarians – make sure you understand them
If you are a veterinarian, you should familiarise yourself with Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) legislation and the legislation in your state or territory. Especially make sure you understand the sections most relevant to you.
As with any agricultural or veterinary chemical (agvet) product, veterinary medicines you import, manufacture, use, store, sell, supply or use must be registered with the APVMA – unless exempt by the legislation. As a veterinarian, the rules and regulations you must follow are similar to those for other chemical users – with some key differences to be aware of.
