APVMA levy audit program

We're working with the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources and PricewaterhouseCoopers to undertake an audit of industry levy payments received for sales of registered agricultural and veterinary chemical products between 2014 and 2017.

A selection of companies with registered agricultural and veterinary chemical products will be audited.

If you sell APVMA registered products, you should ensure your financial reporting is up to date and accurate and you are fully compliant with the legislation. If you find an issue, or require more information, please contact the APVMA on 1300 700 315.

Companies found to have understated their levy contributions may be subject to fines and other compliance action. Companies found to have overstated their sales may be eligible for a refund.

Levies fund the APVMA's work to ensure the ongoing safety and performance of products sold on the Australian market, such as our chemical review and adverse experience reporting programs.
