Quarterly report: July–September 2016
Timeframe performance is improving
Timeframe performance for pesticides and veterinary products is at 83 per cent overall—significantly higher than the 2015–16 average of 66 per cent—which reflects a significant improvement in timeframe performance for pesticide products.
Timeframe performance: products
Work-in-progress is up this quarter, largely due to a higher than expected number of pesticide applications received in the September quarter. Of the total number of applications in progress at the end of September, 79 per cent are within legislative timeframes.
The average duration for applications continues to be variable across item types but overall has remained steady as we continue to build on our systems and process improvements.
Average duration (months) to finalise an application
