WormFax is a summary of WormTest results (in sheep) from around New South Wales (NSW).

Drenches – what is ‘effective’ ?

Hosking (2010) sums it up:

"..there are differences in efficacy standards applied between countries, for example, VICH (which most countries adopt) requires greater than or equal to 90% for a control claim whereas the APVMA in Australia requires greater than 95% for control and greater than 99% for persistent activity claims".

VICH (International Cooperation on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Veterinary Medicinal Products ), officially launched in April 1996,  is a trilateral (EU-Japan-USA) programme aimed at harmonising technical requirements for veterinary product registration
