10: Paying inspection invoices
Inspection fees will vary depending on the duration and location of the inspection and the size and composition of the inspection team.
- For overseas inspections, we will issue invoices to the Australian sponsor(s). You need to pay these before the inspection. Final invoices will be issued to the Australian sponsor(s) after the inspection has occurred. If you decline to contribute to an overseas inspection without reasonable justification, you will not be issued a GMP clearance once the inspection has been closed out.
- For inspections in Australia, we will issue invoices to the manufacturer after the inspection occurs. We will not issue an inspection report until all invoices have been paid. For repeat inspections of Australian manufacturers, the inspection hours may be covered by the annual charge. If this is the case, you may not receive an invoice or may receive an invoice for a reduced number of hours.
- For APVMA inspections for exporting to Europe, relevant fees apply. We will issue an invoice before the inspection. You need to pay this invoice before the inspection takes place.
