Management of use of pesticides and veterinary medicines

State and territory governments are responsible for controlling the use of pesticides and veterinary medicines beyond the point of retail sale. In some states, more than one agency is involved.

Once a registered chemical product is sold or supplied to an end-user, it is controlled by state and territory legislation through legislative initiatives, codes of practice manuals, or standard operating procedures.

The following government agencies are responsible for managing the use of pesticides and veterinary medicines in each state and territory.
