Stakeholder engagement

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 Survey

We commissioned Pollinate, an independent research company, to conduct the APVMA’s 2023 Stakeholder Survey on our behalf. The survey closed on 18 May 2023.

Pollinate is a member of The Research Society and is ISO 20252 certified against the international quality operating standard for market, social and opinion research, which is a certified framework for the management of data security and client and participant confidentiality.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact us on +61 2 6770 2300 or email

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.

Enquiries about the APVMA’s Stakeholder Engagement Framework can be directed to
