Renewing a registration before it expires

You can apply to renew your registration in the last six months before the expiry date. This will extend the expiry date by 5 years from the current expiry date. Applying to renew the registration prior to the expiry date allows suppliers, or commercial users, to ensure their product maintains a valid registration. Prior to renewing the registration, suppliers should check whether there have been any changes to the requirements for their product type by reading the relevant product determination. You will not be able to edit any details when using the ‘renew registration’ function. As such, you must ensure the details in your registration have not changed since your product was originally registered. If the details have changed, you will need to complete a new application to register your product. If you allow your registration to expire, the ‘renew registration’ function will not be available. You will need to complete a new application to register your product.

Steps to creating and submitting a renewal
