APVMA working to improve label access in PUBCRIS

The Australian Pesticide and Veterinary Medicine Authority recently announced that it is working with industry organisation, Growcom, to improve the availability of electronic labels directly from its chemical registration database, PUBCRIS. Under the new arrangements Growcom will contact registrants to source an electronic copy of the manufacturer’s printed label where possible. Where registrants provide Growcom with an electronic copy of their labels, the files will be linked to the product registration details in PUBCRIS allowing seamless access over the web. APVMA encourage registrants to provide electronic copies of labels to Growcom when requested.
