Continuation of new industry minor use permits transition to industry ownership

Summary

Of the 18 permits issued to NRIA / AgAware, 6 are to expire in 2017 with the balance in 201821. Having NRIA / AgAware as the permit holder was only a temporary measure. It was RIRDC’s aim for each RIRDC stakeholder industry to hold their own permit. For some of the 18 NRIA / AgAware permits, APVMA requires additional data before the permits can be renewed. For other NRIA / AgAware permits, no additional data is required. This information has been communicated to each RIRDC stakeholder industry by AgAware in the past. The project team will communicate with all industries listed on each permit (there are multiple NRIA industries on each of the 18 permits) to provide them with: The permit expiry date. The conditions and data requirements associated with the current permit. Options to maintain current permits before they expire. The mechanism for renewal of the current permits with or without additional data. The procedure for the RIRDC stakeholder industry to follow to renew the permit. Agchem company contacts to discuss registration of the use.

Objective Summary

In 2014/15, a RIRDC project, PRJ009369 Management of New Industry Minor Use Permits A transition to Industry Ownership, was contracted to AgAware Consulting Pty Ltd to renew some of the permits (herbicides) that were issued to New Rural Industries Assoc (NRIA). As NRIA was no longer a legal entity, RIRDC required all permits (fungicides, herbicides, insecticides) to be reissued with AgAware Consulting as the permit holder. There are 18 current permits with some expiring in 2017. RIRDC saw this as an interim measure only. The aim was for each of the industries to arrange to hold their own permits. Separate to the Grants trial management project, the project team proposes to communicate with all industries listed on each permit (there are multiple NRIA industries on each of the 18 permits) to provide them with options to maintain or renew the current permits before they expire.
