On 15 December 2015, as part of the 2015-16 MYEFO, the Government announced the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority Advisory Board will be ceased.
The APVMA Chief Executive Officer (CEO) was supported by an advisory board selected and appointed by the Minister for Agriculture. The CEO is responsible for the governance and management and of the authority, including the performance of its functions and the exercise of its powers. The advisory board provided advice and made recommendations to the CEO about the performance of a function or exercise of a power of APVMA. The advisory board did not have decision-making power, but assisted to inform the CEO on strategic matters and provided an expert consultative mechanism. As a result of the 2015-16 MYEFO, the advisory board ceased to operate.
