Proposal to increase HSNO fees
In April 2018, we consulted on our proposal to increase fees for hazardous substances and new organisms applications.
As a result of the consultation, from 1 October 2018 the fees for hazardous substances and new organisms applications will increase.
The new fees reflect the feedback from submitters, as well as a reassessment of the benefits to the public and industry of some application types.
The EPA Board agreed a new Schedule of Charges and Fees on 12 July 2018, as provided under section 21 of the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act.
We received 30 written submissions, and also spoke with a number of other people who gave us verbal feedback at stakeholder events held in Auckland and Wellington.
