Technical policy

The APVMA establishes and uses technical policies to ensure its risk assessments of pesticides and veterinary medicines are scientifically robust, fit-for-purpose and consistent with international best practice.

No-observed-effect level and no-observed-adverse effect level: use in animal health risk assessments

We have harmonised our terminology for describing toxicological thresholds with those used internationally.

Adopted international technical guidance material

We have adopted international technical guidance materials within our data guidelines to satisfy legislative criteria. View the list of international technical guidance material.
