    The FAISD Handbook is a consolidation of the advice provided to the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) by the Office of Chemical Safety (OCS) in the Australian Government Department of Health (Health), up to the date of amendment. The data on which these recommendations are based has been supplied largely by companies and persons seeking approval and registration of products from the APVMA. The recommendations are intended to provide guidance to these parties in the approval of labels for agricultural and veterinary chemical products.
