Government Registration

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 below:

  1. Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA)
  2. 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 if 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 post harvest treatment of all fruit and vegetables.

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ)

Food Standard Australia New Zealand ensures safe food by developing effective food standards for Australia and New Zealand.

They are an integral part of a strong food regulatory system operating between governments at all levels in Australia and New Zealand.

They develop food standards with advice from other government agencies, input from stakeholders and food regulatory policies endorsed by the Australia and New Zealand Food Regulation Ministerial Council.
Their decisions are open and accountable, based on the rigorous scientific assessment of any risk to public health and safety.

In Australia, they develop food standards for the entire food supply chain, from primary production through to manufactured food and retail outlets

In Australia, Food Standards Australia New Zealand develops food standards to cover the whole of the food supply chain - from paddock to plate - for both the food manufacturing industry and primary producers.

Food Standards Australia New Zealand works in partnership with Australia' s Commonwealth, State and Territory governments and the New Zealand Government. They also seek to engage industry, consumers and public health professionals in their work.
