Proposed agricultural and veterinary chemicals legislation amendments

At the meeting in early January 2014, Ms Stone informed us that the Australian Government is seeking comments on its proposed Amendment Bill. These amendments aim to reform the approval, registration and review of agvet chemicals to improve effectiveness of the regulatory system and reduce inefficiencies at the APVMA, making processes more predictable, clearer and less unwieldy for industry. The draft Bill is available at and comments close on Friday 7 March 2014.
