Cost Recovery Impact Statement approved
29 November 2012
The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has today published a Cost Recovery Impact Statement (CRIS).
This CRIS covers the period 1 July 2013 – 30 June 2015 (2 years). During this period a First-principles Review of the APVMA’s cost recovery arrangements will be completed.
The introduction of some new fees and charges outlined in this CRIS are subject to the passage of the Better Regulation of Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals reform legislation and associated regulations (external site).
Key changes to the APVMA’s cost recovery activities reflected in this CRIS include:
- returning application fees to 40 per cent cost recovery level
- recovering the full cost of compliance with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
- implementing a number of new fees and charges for activities flowing from the implementation of the Better Regulation of Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals reforms.
