The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority’s (APVMA) revised cost recovery arrangements will take effect from 1 July 2020. The fee that will apply depends on the time an application (that meets the application requirements) is lodged in the Online Services Portal.
Registration renewals paid prior to 1 July 2020 are subject to the pre-1 July 2020 fee structure. The revised cost recovery arrangements are not retrospective.
Further information is available on our website.
Due to the large number of applications received in the week prior to 1 July 2020, clients may experience a delay of up to three weeks before an application appears in your account. The APVMA is working to reduce the backlog as quickly as possible. Overall timeframes will not be affected.
Clients should also note the ‘module cloning’ option is currently operating with reduced functionality. This is when a reference number from a previous application is used. The option may still be used, but clients will need to select modules for each application. We expect to have this fixed by 31 July 2020.
Finally, applications created in the Online Services Portal before 1 July 2020 but not submitted until after this date may not correctly access the new fee structure. The APVMA will send a separate invoice seeking payment of any fee difference before processing the application.
