Public consultation-changes to publication process for submissions

2020-09-02

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) is updating our process for handling submissions received in response to public consultations.

For public consultations starting on or after 2 September 2020, submissions will be published on our website unless:

the author requests the submission (or part(s) of it) remain confidential, or

we determine it would be unreasonable to publish the submission.

We’ve also introduced a public submission coversheet to be lodged with submissions, which stakeholders can use to specify any parts of their submission they may not want published.

Once a public consultation has concluded we will publish a summary, and a consolidated copy, of submissions received.

Questions about the APVMA’s revised public consultation submission process can be directed to enquiries@apvma.gov.au.
