Update on the APVMA's Review of Cost Recovery Arrangements

Comments on the APVMA's Draft Cost Recovery Impact Statement (CRIS) closed on 20 February 2009. Issues raised in submissions on the Draft CRIS will be compiled and considered during preparation of the Final CRIS. The release of the Final CRIS is expected in May 2009, with implementation of the revised arrangements to start to take effect from 1 July 2009. The implementation of the revised cost recovery arrangements are likely to be staggered due to the legislative changes required. Stakeholders will be notified of the impending changes in advance. Please subscribe to the review to receive email updates.
