Proposed changes to fees for statutory plant health services provided by the Animal and Plant Health Agency in England and Wales

Closes 31 Oct 2017

Opened 6 Sep 2017

Overview

We are seeking views on proposed changes to the charging structure and fees for the following plant health services provided by the Animal and Plant Health Agency in England and Wales:

  • Inspection of imported plants and plant material and sampling and testing of potatoes imported from Egypt and the Lebanon;
  • Seed potato certification;
  • Plant passporting;
  • Export certification;
  • Plant health licensing and
  • Certification of fruit propagating material.

The proposals are about changing how we charge for these services. The scope and nature of these services is not changing and they will continue their important role of protecting the health of our crops, produce, trees and plants.

The consultation also seeks information about the impact of the proposals on businesses, including small or micro-businesses.
