Usability of the proposed APVMA Labelling Standard


The APVMA has revised the Labelling Standard in line with the recent labelling reforms. The document below includes requirements for:

  • information contained on labels
  • the placement of information on labels
  • the label layout and format
  • label legibility

Regulation 18E imposes a condition of label approval that the label must comply with a labelling standard.

The Standard has been developed based on those aspects of the Ag Labelling Code or the Vet Labelling Code (Volume 5 of MORAG) that are mandatory for labelling.

See more information on the consultation process for the labelling reforms.
