Biosecurity Costs Regulations and Levy Orders Review Project 2009
For more information about Fees, please visit the Fees and Charges page.
The Biosecurity Costs Regulations and Levy Orders Review Project was completed in 2010. It resulted in new Biosecurity (Costs) Regulations 2010 (the Regulations) and a Biosecurity (System Entry Levy) Order 2010 (the levy order), which took effect on 1 July 2010.
The Regulations and the new levy order made a number of changes to the structure of charges paid by importers to MAF for biosecurity clearance of imported goods and other related activities at the border.
In 2012, the biosecurity systems entry levy was adjusted to take account of new charges for the implementation of Tranche 1 of the Joint Border Management System. For more information on the 2012 review, please visit the 2012 biosecurity levy review page or go to www.jbmsconsultation.govt.nz.
