There are significant biosecurity risks associated with the
in vivo use of imported biological products in non-laboratory animals. (Laboratory animals include those defined in the following list and must be contained under laboratory conditions: guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, rabbits, rats, rodents, and micro-organisms.)
in vivo use in non-laboratory organisms (for example chickens, sheep, cattle) a separate
in vivo application must be lodged with, and approved by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources. This also applies if the product is to be used in vaccine or veterinary therapeutic manufacture. Approval for
in vivo use must be obtained at the time of importation, or prior to pre-imported biologicals being used for any
in vivo purpose.
