Extended assessment period and maximum response period

The assessment period in which the APVMA is required to determine an application varies depending on the complexity of the application. The APVMA’s regulations prescribe assessment period, the extended assessment period if a notice under section 159 of the Agvet Code requiring additional information is issued and the maximum period an applicant has to response to this notice (see tables 1).
