Data assessors

Below you will find details on the process of becoming an MPI-listed data assessor and other information relevant to your work as a data assessor.

The ACVM Group requires data assessment to be done before an application for registration (or variation) is made under the ACVM Act.  Such an application must include appropriate data assessment reports from a competent and independent data assessor.

The purpose of listing data assessors is to give a clear, transparent and predictable view on the acceptability of data assessment reports. This allows applicants to make an informed decision in regard to the supply of the data assessment reports that are essential for the appraisal of an application to register (or to vary registration of) a trade name product.

It is not mandatory for persons completing data assessment reports to be listed. However, MPI’s expectation is that data assessment reports completed by non-listed persons will be subject to greater scrutiny and the ACVM Group may require peer review.

The guidance document (linked below) explains the process of becoming listed as a data assessor to carry out independent data assessment in specified areas and to prepare data assessment reports concerning trade name products for registration (or variation).
