Word from the APVMA

Information in the PUBCRIS and Permits databases are now available in a handy free mobile app for iPhone (and should be generally suitable for iPad users as well).

In addition to the details available in the online databases, the AVPMA mobile app also includes access to information about stopped, cancelled, suspended and archived products. The app has some enhanced search features and will offer suggestions from partially completed search terms. It has a favourites option for fast retrieval in the future and will allow you to email search results for selected products.

As well as the enhanced search features, you can also browse the database by category—agricultural, veterinary, household, pool chemicals and other industry products—or use the A-Z listing.

The permits module was introduced in the second release of the app in April 2013. With the addition of this module, the app also allows you to search for permits in a very similar manner to the product registration searches.

Remember, you’ll need an active data connection to search across the database when using this app. Whenever you ‘favourite’ a search, that saved search will always call up the most current data available in our databases, even if the database has been updated in the meantime.
