The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has released a draft Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS) for consultation, which proposes future cost recovery arrangements for the period 1 March 2020 to 30 June 2022. The draft CRIS outlines three options for recovering costs associated with the APVMA’s regulatory activities. It focuses on ensuring appropriate and sustainable revenue to enable efficient and effective administration of agricultural and veterinary (agvet) chemical regulation. As a key APVMA stakeholder you are invited to provide comments or submissions on the draft CRIS before 2 December 2019. Stakeholder comments received in response to the draft CRIS will be used to provide input to the APVMA’s cost recovery arrangements for the period 1 March 2020 to 30 June 2022. The APVMA is committed to working with industry and stakeholders to identify cost recovery arrangements that are fair, equitable and transparentand which provide certainty for both our stakeholders and the APVMA.
