Proposed Changes to PrimeSafe Licence Categories and Fees

This is an archived news items and this article is no longer current.

Notice is given in accordance with section 11 of the Subordinate Legislation Act 1994 that a Regulatory Impact Statement has been prepared in relation to proposed changes to some of PrimeSafe’s licence categories and fees.

The objectives of the proposed fee changes are to:

  • Ensure that PrimeSafe will have the resources to meet the efficient costs of acquitting its regulatory obligations for 2016-17 and beyond, while ensuring that:
    • fees remain affordable for licensed entities; and
    • public confidence in the safety of meat, seafood and poultry and the maintenance of animal welfare standards are maintained; and
  • Remove unused licence categories and improve equity between regulated entities by achieving a better alignment between regulatory costs and fees paid across different licence categories.

The Regulatory Impact Statement assesses the costs and benefits of the proposed new licence categories and fees and possible alternative means of achieving the stated objectives, and explains why the proposed option is the best means of achieving the stated objectives.

Public comments are invited on the Regulatory Impact Statement and proposed fee schedules.
