The program

The program is refreshed for each session to ensure topics remain current, and that they reflect the feedback we receive from previous sessions.

Each event aims to cover areas of interest around the application and registration processes and related topics. 

Day one of the 2016 Canberra program will be a special science feature day with the theme ‘Regulatory science and innovation in the global context’. See the full program and speaker information.

Day two of the Canberra 2016 program will be a repeat of the information session held in this year in May in Melbourne, with some updates to the topics, which include:

  • APVMA priorities update
  • application and registration updates, understanding the statutory criteria, predictability in getting a decision, primary and secondary applications
  • enhancing the user experience through improved online services and guiding information on the APVMA website
  • updates on our lower regulatory approach initiatives to more quickly register certain agvet chemical products
  • updates from Compliance, Manufacturing Quality and Licensing and Office of the Chief Scientist.
