Australian regulators mull verification rules

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) is considering the need for greater product verification in light of a recent court decision to reverse its recall of 52 agrochemicals ( Agrow No 552, p 17). The need for legislative reform is also being considered. The APVMA recalled Imtrade Australia’s products over the supply of false information about a manufacturing site. The Agency has reinstated the registrations following the Federal Court ruling. “We certainly do not condone the supply of false information, but are required to give effect to the Court’s decision,” says the APVMA’s regulatory strategy and compliance manager, Neville Matthew.
