Regulatory update #244

8 December 2016

Wrap-up and videos from Canberra Industry Information and Education Session

Over 180 people attended the most recent two-day Industry Information and Education session in Canberra on 8–9 November 2016.

On the first day participants heard from a range of experts—exploring themes around regulatory science and innovation in the global context—day two focused on updates from across the APVMA.

Video recordings of a range of the presentations from both days are available on the APVMA’s YouTube channel.

Dates for future sessions will be published in early 2017.

Streamlining the payment process

The APVMA has commenced introducing an option to pay the full fee at the time an application is submitted.

At the moment this is only available for some application types and will be progressively implemented for all application types over the next few months.

A notice on the Online Services Portal will identify which items have this option available—if an item is not listed, it isn’t available yet.

If you have any questions please contact the APVMA enquiries team on +61 2 6210 4701 or by email.

Reminder—efficacy contestability pilot

The APVMA is running a pilot to determine the feasibility of moving the function of conducting or commissioning a data assessment from the APVMA to the private sector.

The pilot aims to identify and rectify any potential issues and demonstrate whether the proposed process can increase the efficiency of application processing. If you are interested in participating in the pilot, please contact the Efficacy Assessment Coordinator.
