Stakeholder engagement

Our 2022 Client and Stakeholder Survey is now closed.

We collaborate and liaise with a broad range of stakeholders to achieve our purpose and support the effective implementation of the National Registration Scheme. Our stakeholders include agvet industry members and representative bodies, government and regulatory partners, producers and representative bodies, the scientific community, consumers and the general public.

Stakeholder Engagement Framework

In September 2020 we published our Stakeholder Engagement Framework, which sets out our strategic approach to stakeholder consultation and collaboration for the 2020–23 period.

The Framework is intended to support the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) to achieve our corporate strategies and guide our important work with stakeholders.

An accompanying document, APVMA Stakeholder Engagement Activities, outlines the events and activities we intend to undertake throughout 2021–22 and will be reviewed annually. Previous Stakeholder Engagement Activities are listed below.
