The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has developed a training program to help industry get ready for the changes occurring from 1 July to agricultural and veterinary legislation and regulations. The training program is based on feedback received from individuals and industry groups, and from legislation information sessions held earlier this year. The timing of sessions is designed to assist people in the lead-up to, and following, the commencement of the new legislation on 1 July.

A free two-day training event has been planned in Canberra on 2 and 3 June, pending sufficient interest. The format will be flexible and allows participants to decide whether to attend all sessions or just pick those of greatest relevance to their sector. Participants will have direct access to a range of specialist APVMA staff over the two-day program for both networking and one-on-one discussions. Interested parties are encouraged to register as soon as possible as the workshop will only go ahead if there is sufficient interest.

In a second phase, APVMA will offer eLearning training modules on its website from June. These modules will focus on key areas such as the pre-application process, making applications, preliminary assessment and permits. These self-paced modules will continue to be available after the new legislation comes into place. The draft regulatory guidelines and information about how to get ready for the changes are available now.
