Quarterly report: October–December 2016
The APVMA commenced assessment of 1128 applications in the December quarter 2016, including 655 new applications for product registration, active approval, permits and preliminary assessment.
Timeframe performance for product registration, active approval and permits improved slightly in December quarter 2016, and was well above performance a year ago.
Timeframe performance for product registrations fell to 69 per cent due to a drop in pesticide registrations completed within timeframe. Timeframe performance for veterinary medicine registrations improved.
Work in progress rose slightly, with 1321 applications in progress as at 31 December 2016—an increase of 55 applications from 30 September 2016. Increases in work in progress for product and permit applications were slightly offset by a drop in applications for active approvals.
Work in progress
Work in progress still within timeframe dropped to 74% in the December quarter (from 79% in the September quarter)—that is one in four applications being considered by the APVMA were overdue at the end of 2016. As the APVMA clears the overdue applications, it will (negatively) impact on timeframe performance in future quarters.
