Compliance Legislative Reform Working Group

This page is an archive.

The role of the Compliance Legislative Reform Working Group was overtaken by the Australian Government’s Better Regulation reforms.

20 November 2009

The APVMA is calling for expressions of interest from industry to participate in a compliance legislative reform working group.  The purpose of the working group is to critically evaluate current compliance provisions in the Agvet Codes with a view to making recommendations for improvements.  Improvements may include:

  1. strengthening and rationalising offence provisions
  2. considering the introduction of civil penalties
  3. enhancing the range and effectiveness of administrative remedies, and
  4. streamlining of evidence collection.

Ideally the group would include representatives from across the APVMA’s stakeholder profile. Once the group is established, Terms of Reference can be finalised and a discussion paper distributed.  Meetings may consist of virtual meetings and/or meetings at the APVMA in Canberra.  All costs of participation are expected to be absorbed by participants.
