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.
