The APVMA Regulator Performance Framework (APVMA RPF) sets out how the APVMA intends to measure and report its performance against the RPF. It contains performance measures against each key indicator as well as the evidence that will be collected to demonstrate performance.
The APVMA has progressed work that will contribute to the regulatory efficiency and enhanced client services of agricultural and veterinary chemical regulation in Australia. Regulatory performance by the APVMA has been satisfactory, however the agency acknowledges that fluctuating and at times deteriorating operational performance must be addressed to improve the timeliness of regulatory decision making and meet statutory obligations in full.
Results varied across the six performance indicators outlining strengths in the agency’s compliance and monitoring programs and satisfactory delivery in client service, regulatory transparency and proportional risk management.
