Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA)
Whether a veterinary chemical product supplied in Australia is manufactured locally or overseas, the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals code (Agvet Code) requires every step of manufacture to meet a certain standard. It also requires manufacturers to use an effective quality control system to confirm their intermediate or finished products continue to meet that standard, before being released from manufacture or released for final supply.
The Australian Code of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) for Veterinary Chemical Products ensures that products are consistently manufactured to the quality standards appropriate for their intended veterinary use and in accordance with their registration particulars and specifications. GMP is a system that consists of processes, procedures and documentation that ensures manufactured products are consistently produced and controlled according to a set of quality standards.
