Ioteq actively pursues appropriate government registration
for its product and process wherever required.
Currently this process has concentrated on the Australian and USA health authorities.
Applications for other jurisdictions such as EU will follow.
To date, after rigorous research and testing, Ioteq has received specific
approvals from the two main food regulatory bodies in Australia which are detailed
- Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA)
- Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ)
Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA)
The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) is an
Australian government authority responsible for the assessment and registration
of pesticides and veterinary medicines and for their regulation up to and including
the point of retail sale.
The APVMA administers the National Registration Scheme
for Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals (NRS) in partnership with the States
and Territories and
with the active involvement of other Australian government agencies.
Their role is to independently evaluate the safety and performance of chemical
products intended for sale, making sure that the health and safety of people,
animals and the environment are protected. Only products that meet these
high standards are allowed to be supplied. They also do not register products
their use is likely to jeopardise trade or they don't work.
To ensure that only products that meet APVMA requirements are actually supplied,
they constantly monitor the market for compliance.
Ioteq received specific APVMA approval for its BioMaxA Iodine as
delivered by the Isan technology for use as a general purpose sanitizer for
harvest treatment of all fruit and vegetables.
