This plan has two parts:

  • PART 1 – Applications received and proposals prepared from 1 October 2007 onwards
  • PART 2 – Applications received and proposals prepared before 1 October 2007

If you have any questions about items on the Work Plan please contact the Standards Management Officer by email or by phone: +61 2 6271 2280.

Applications and proposals are placed on the plan in the order they are received and are generally worked on in that order. Sometimes those that have expected timelines later than applications and proposals maybe progressed earlier than those with later expected timelines. This can happen for a number of reasons including differences in complexity, availability of specialist expertise, withdrawal of applications or delays in completion such as requests for further information.

Under the FSANZ Act, applicants can choose to pay fees to bring forward the start of the assessment of their application. The anticipated start date of an unpaid application or proposal cannot be displaced by work on paid applications.
