Consultation on a new permit to authorise certain label changes without APVMA approval

1 August 2011


Currently, applicants can change specific aspects of registered product labels without obtaining APVMA approval. This occurs through permits 6868, 9284 and 9523. However, recent amendments to the Agvet Code have allowed more flexibility in this area.

As a result, permits 9284 and 9523 are no longer required, while some aspects of permit 6868 remain relevant.

The APVMA has developed a new permit to authorise the relevant aspects of permit 6868 and other label changes in line with the new labelling requirements.

Input sought
