Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 2002, set out transitional provisions under the Agricultural Compounds and Veterinary Medicines Act 1997 (the 1997 Act).

Under the 1997 Act, certain animal remedies and pesticides continue to be governed by the provisions of the Animal Remedies Act 1967 and the Pesticides Act 1979. These regulations end this transitional regime and provide that animal remedies, and pesticides that are agricultural compounds, are to be treated as if they were registered as trade name products under the 1997 Act.

For most animal remedies and pesticides, this deemed registration will continue until the close of 1 July 2004.

The conditions and requirements that the animal remedies and pesticides were subject to under the Animal Remedies Act 1967 and the Pesticides Act 1979 are to be treated as conditions imposed under the 1997 Act, except to the extent that they are inconsistent with the 1997 Act. The regulations do not affect the application of the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996.

Certain confidential information relating to animal remedies and pesticides that is protected by transitional provisions in the 1997 Act continues to be protected.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 30 May 2002.
