In the year ahead, we will deliver the Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS), improving our budget position, and ensuring our important work of regulating agricultural and veterinary chemicals is resourced in an appropriate, sustainable and transparent way.
We will continue to enhance our collaboration and information sharing with international and domestic partners, and improve our risk assessment processes and data guidelines to support high-quality and timely decision making.
We will continue to embed our operating model, deliver the Enabling Technologies Program, modernise our ICT operating environment, and support our staff through improved competency-based training.
Our commitment to scientific excellence and ongoing drive for business process improvement and efficiency will continue to support our long-term goals of reducing the regulatory burden for industry, improving access to safe chemicals, and increasing productivity of the Australian agvet sector.
I am pleased to highlight the APVMA’s achievements for 2018–19 in this annual report, and I look forward to seeing our long-term investment in the APVMA’s infrastructure, people and processes yield positive results in 2019–20.
