The Zoonoses (Fees) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017

Consultation opened on 08 December 2016. Closing date 19 January 2017.


The Department of Agriculture, Environment & Rural Affairs (DAERA)has launched a consultation on the Zoonoses (Fees) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 to seek views from stakeholders.


Consultation description

The proposed new Regulations will introduce revised fees for poultry flock holders for statutory testing and sampling under EU 2160/2003.

The existing fees have been reviewed in light of current costs relating to the testing regimes under EU 2160/2003 and it is now necessary to introduce a new fess schedule to enable DAERA to fully recover costs of services provided.  This will ensure compliance with government policy of full cost recovery.

The following consultation package includes the proposed draft Regulations as well as a draft Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) detailing the amended schedule of fees.
