DAFF publishes initial public submissions received for its first-principles review of the cost recovery arrangements for the APVMA
26 October 2012
The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) has published initial public submissions (external site) received for a first-principles review of the cost recovery arrangements for the APVMA.
This review aims to examine and recommend options to strengthen the financial sustainability, transparency and accountability of the APVMA’s cost recovery arrangements. The review is focused on the structure of the APVMA’s cost recovery framework. The review does not include consideration of the scope and level of the APVMA’s regulatory activities.
An invitation from DAFF for further submissions will follow the development of a new draft cost recovery framework (expected to be released in the first half of 2013).
For more information on the first-principles review—go to the DAFF website (external site).
