The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) is conducting a review of the labelling requirements for agricultural products as set out in the Agricultural Labelling Code (ALC).

The objectives of the review, which will be conducted by the APVMA’s Pesticides Team, are to ensure the ALC is:

consistent in all matters of advice across all sections of the ALC

administered consistently across the APVMA

provided in a clear and concise format on our website

easy to use, navigate and find information.

The scope of the review does not include any amendment that would require legislative change.

In undertaking this exercise, the APVMA will review all general and specific labelling requirements of the ALC and submit these in batches to industry and other interested bodies for consideration and comment.

We will also improve the presentation, accessibility and functionally of the ALC on the APVMA website and will make the test pages available to industry for final review before undertaking a public consultation.

We anticipate the review of label content will begin in late 2021, with the release of the first batch of content for comment scheduled to begin in 2022 and end in early 2024. Public consultation and final revision of the updated ALC is expected towards the end of 2024.

The APVMA will review all feedback received and seek further stakeholder consultation where necessary.
