MPI cost recovery for food safety and biosecurity
MPI have completed a review of how costs are recovered from individuals and industries for food safety and biosecurity services and have updated a number of fees that will come into effect on 1 July 2015.
KVH has been involved in the consultation process of the Cost Recovery Review and supports a user-pays approach and changes to regulations and operating procedures that result in better biosecurity protection for our industry.
The user-pays approach is consistent with the new passenger surcharge at the border announced in the last week’s budget.
Details on the fee changes for biosecurity services are available on the MPI website.
