Quarterly report: April–June 2017
Quarterly results released with the national regulator determined to improve performance
Statistics released by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) for the June quarter of 2017 show that despite fluctuations in timeframe performance, the agency continues to deliver on its regulatory purpose, providing confidence that the agricultural and veterinary chemicals in Australia are safe and effective.
The APVMA finalised 2453 applications for new actives, products and permits in 2016–17, providing Australian farmers and veterinarians with access to more than 200 additional products bringing new chemicals, innovative crop protection and vet medicines to Australia.
Work in progress increased steadily by 50 – 80 applications per quarter over the first three quarters of 2016-17 with a sharp increase in the final June quarter.
