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.
Data Assessor Workshop
The next workshop for data assessors will be on Friday, 8 September, 9.30am - 4pm, at St. Andrew’s on the Terrace (30 The Terrace, Wellington).This is an opportunity for data assessors to come along and hear about changes to the ACVM registration process and how they may affect data assessments in future, as well as more specific topics such as the revision of chemistry and manufacturing information guidance. This workshop is suitable for currently listed and new data assessors. Register your interest with email@example.com. Please note that there will be a small charge to cover costs for the day.
