Explanatory note

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

These regulations come into force on 2 August 2007. They amend the Agricultural Compounds and Veterinary Medicines Regulations 2001 (the principal regulations). The principal regulations are made under the Agricultural Compounds and Veterinary Medicines Act 1997 (the Act).

The definition of fertiliser additive is amended. A fertiliser additive may now be applied directly to a plant and may simply increase biological activity.

A definition of topical is inserted. The definition excludes the application of substances to the eye or the ear canal.

A definition is inserted for oral gastrointestinal-acting microflora-enhancing compounds. A new regulation is inserted that allows these compounds to be exempt from registration under the Act if certain conditions are complied with. The conditions are set out in a new Schedule 4A.

Schedule 1 of the principal regulations specifies agricultural compounds that are exempt from registration if applicable codes of practice are complied with. It is replaced with a revised schedule, in which—

  • clauses 5 and 6 specify certain non-absorbable masking agents and cleaning products:

  • clause 9 now specifies certain compounds used to protect plant grafts or plant wounds:

  • clause 12 now specifies compounds used in the post-harvest treatment of wood-producing crops.

Schedule 2 of the principal regulations specifies agricultural compounds that are exempt from registration if certain conditions and requirements are complied with. It is replaced with a revised schedule, which now specifies (amongst other things)—

  • certain oral and topical preparations that are prepared from a plant or unrefined plant extract and that do not claim to have pharmacological or anabolic effects, or to modify the physiological function of an animal:

  • certain topical preparations that contain ingredients not absorbed through the skin and that do not include certain ingredients:

  • certain topical hoof preparations that contain ingredients that act only on the surface to which they are applied and that do not include certain ingredients, with a condition applied to these preparations:

  • non-medicated antidiarrhoeal preparations that are used solely as gastrointestinal adsorbent or protectant agents, and that do not make claims about binding any specific micro-organism or toxin, with more labelling conditions applied to these preparations:

  • non-medicated orally and rectally administered laxatives and lubricants:

  • certain non-medicated moist or dry poultice preparations, with conditions applied to these preparations:

  • plant compounds that are used solely in home gardens or amenity horticulture on plants that are not intended to be used as food for humans or animals, with a labelling condition applied to these compounds.

Schedule 7 of the principal regulations specifies substances that are generally recognised as safe if used in accordance with certain conditions. It is replaced with a revised and updated schedule, which now specifies substances that are generally recognised as safe feed additives in oral nutritional compounds or safe ingredients in oral gastrointestinal-acting microflora-enhancing compounds.
