Department of Agriculture releases submissions on the consultation paper for the first-principles review of the APVMA's cost recovery arrangements

3 March 2014

The Department of Agriculture has published public submissions on the consultation paper for the first-principles review of the cost recovery arrangements for the APVMA. 

In November 2013, the Department of Agriculture released a consultation paper on cost recovery for various activities undertaken by the APVMA, aiming to strengthen the financial sustainability, transparency and accountability of the APVMA's cost recovery arrangements. The consultation paper analysed potential cost recovery options and invited stakeholders to comment on these or to suggest alternative options. Stakeholders were asked to comment by 21 February 2014.

For more information on the first-principles review—go to the Department of Agriculture website.
