Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Legislation Amendment (Operational Efficiency) Bill 2017

​​​The consultation period for the proposed legislative changes in this draft Bill is now closed and the government is considering the issues raised in submissions.

The proposed legislative changes would streamline industry reporting, support the operational efficiency of the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA), clarify ambiguities in the legislation and remove unnecessary and redundant provisions. The APVMA is the Australian Government independent regulator of agricultural and veterinary chemicals.

The proposed legislative changes would amend the:

  • Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals (Administration) Act 1992
  • Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Code Act 1994
  • Agricultural and Veterinary Chemical Products (Collection of Levy) Act 1994.
