  • revokes regulation 7 of the principal regulations (which relates to reports on agricultural compounds):

  • substitutes the following schedules:

    • Schedule 1 (which lists agricultural compounds that are exempt from registration if applicable codes of practice are complied with) has been amended to insert 3 new compounds into, and to exclude 5 compounds from, item 1 of the former Schedule 1:

    • Schedule 2 (which lists agricultural compounds that are exempt from registration if certain conditions are complied with) has been amended to include the compounds listed in the former Schedule 3 of the principal regulations, and to insert—

      • a new condition in relation to oral and topical preparations:

      • a new compound into the schedule, namely, any compound that is used to extend animal semen or to be used as media for animal ova:

    • New Schedule 3 (which lists excluded ingredients for topical preparations):

    • Schedule 4 (which lists conditions that apply to oral nutritional compounds exempt from registration) has been amended to include a new criteria for determining whether an oral nutritional compound is fit for its purpose, namely, that its use does not result in physical harm causing pain or distress in an animal:
