Inspection fees will vary depending on the duration, the size and composition of the inspection team and (where applicable) the location of the inspection.
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 when an application is lodged and after the inspection occurs. Inspections cannot occur until the application fee has been paid. We will not issue a licence or licence variation until all invoices have been paid.
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.
The Department of Health and Aged Care acknowledges First Nations peoples as the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to all Elders both past and present.
