APVMA Advisory Board Futures Forum 2014
The APVMA Advisory Board hosted a Futures Forum on 5–6 November 2014. A summary of the outcomes of the forum is now available.
With the theme Building a Regulator for the Future the forum provided an opportunity for attendees to participate in discussions, provide input and engage with representatives from the chemical and agricultural industries, consumer representatives, government and research organisations.

- identify risks and opportunities through discussion with stakeholders
- provide key themes which feed into strategic and business planning for the APVMA
- support the development of the APVMA Corporate Plan for 2015-18
- inform operational business process improvement, and
- share the work the APVMA has done to develop a risk-based assessment framework to better align regulatory burden with regulatory risk.
