Significant activities and changes

In 2018–19, the APVMA saw the physical completion of the authority’s relocation to Armidale. This was as a result of a 2016 Government Policy Order under s. 22 of the PGPA Act, which specified that a corporate Commonwealth entity with agricultural policy or regulatory responsibilities are to be located in a regional community that is near a main campus of a regional university recognised for research and teaching in the field of agricultural sciences.
