GRAIN CENTRAL | GPA calls for action on APVMA reforms ahead of sowing

Grain Producers Australia's is calling for review and meaningful change to address poor performance by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) before there are significant industry impacts.

GPA RD&E Spokesperson and Southern Region Grower Director Andrew Weidemann AM highlighted to Grain Central the problem with product registration delays that had the potential to cost millions in lost productivity should APVMA's performance not remarkably improve.

“GPA members continue to support an independent, evidence based and scientifically focused regulator that’s operating as efficiently as it should and can be,” he said.

“We need to ensure the balance is right and farmers are not being hindered by substandard performance, which denies access to the tools we need to protect our crops and the environment."
