The Australian Pesticide and Veterinary Medicine Authority (APVMA) have extended the period to waive or refund fees associated with Item 18 applications for veterinary active constituents until the end of April 2016. This transition measure means, for all the existing section 161 notifications already received by the APVMA, applicants will not be charged for variations where the APVMA redirects the 161 notification to an application item. The refund for any new 161 notifications for variations will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Further information about making changes to veterinary products and applications is available on the website.
