Registration Guidelines - Manual of Requirements and Guidelines (MORAG)

MORAG sets out the requirements and guidelines for registering veterinary and agricultural products in Australia.

For veterinary chemicals use VetMORAG 

For agricultural chemicals use AgMORAG

Registrants can work through MORAG to determine the appropriate application category, the data requirements, and what fees will apply. MORAG also contains guidelines, labeling information and links to relevant application forms. New users should start by reading the Introduction to MORAG found in in Volume 1.

Pay Application Fees

MORAG sets out the fees payable for each application type. You can pay application fees by credit card, or by cheque made payable to the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority.
