ACVM data assessors

Find out about assessing data for agricultural compounds and veterinary medicines and about the process of becoming an MPI-listed data assessor.

ACVM data assessors

MPI requires data assessment to be done before an application for registration (or variation to registration) is made under the ACVM Act. Such an application must include appropriate data assessment reports from a competent and independent data assessor.

The purpose of listing data assessors is to give a clear, transparent, and predictable view on the acceptability of data assessment reports. This allows applicants to make an informed decision in regard to the supply of the data assessment reports that are essential for the appraisal of an application to register (or to vary the registration of) a trade name product.

It is not mandatory for persons completing data assessment reports to be listed. However, MPI expects that data assessment reports completed by non-listed persons will be subject to greater scrutiny and we may require peer review.

Becoming an MPI-listed data assessor

The guidance document below explains the process of becoming listed as a data assessor. Those who carry out this role perform independent data assessment in specified areas and prepare data assessment reports concerning trade name products for registration (or variation).
