Guidelines for submitting E-files for ACVM applications

Have your say

We are seeking feedback on the updated guideline – E-files for ACVM applications. The guideline specifies the format and naming conventions for the electronic submission of ACVM (Agricultural Compounds and Veterinary Medicines) application documentation. The updated guidance includes developments in technology, such as ShareFile, which have taken place since the original guidance was written in 2012.

Submissions are public information

Any submission you make becomes public information. Anyone can ask for copies of all submissions under the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA). The OIA says we must make the information available unless we have a good reason for withholding it. You can find those grounds in sections 6 and 9 of the OIA. Tell us if you think there are grounds to withhold specific information in your submission. Reasons might include, it's commercially sensitive or it's personal information. However, any decision MPI makes to withhold information can be reviewed by the Ombudsman, who may require the information be released.
