APVMA quality management system
The APVMA maintains strong controls over its key processes to ensure its legislative obligations are met. The APVMA quality management system emphasises responsiveness to customers and stakeholders, consistency of output, efficient resource management and continuous improvement. It is reviewed and monitored by a monthly managers' meeting and is subject to internal and external audit.
APVMA Audit Committee
The APVMA Audit Committee is an essential part of the APVMA’s governance and risk framework. One of the main functions of the committee is the approval and oversight of the strategic internal audit plan. The committee also monitors the results of the annual financial statement audit conducted by the Australian National Audit Office.
