Submissions are being sought on the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Legislation Amendment (Removing Re-Approval and Re-Registration) Bill 2014.
The Bill implements the Australian Government’s 2013 election commitment to remove the requirement for agricultural chemicals and veterinary medicines re-registration. This will be achieved by removing end dates for approvals and last renewal dates for registrations so that approvals will no longer end after a particular period and registrations may be renewed perpetually. It will also remove redundant provisions that allow applications to re-approve and re-register active constituents and chemical products.
Please direct any feedback to Danielle Whitfield by Wednesday 16 April on 08 9486 2100 or [email protected]. Alternatively, members may make their own submission by 18 April.
