Consultation description

The Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) is seeking views on proposed changes to charges for some of the services we provide for the protection of animal health and welfare, and the introduction of charges for some other services.

The changes will apply to APHA services provided across Great Britain.

There are two online consultations at https://consult.defra.gov.uk/:

The first consultation is about changing existing charges for the following services:

  • Poultry Health Scheme
  • Salmonella National Control Programme
  • Border Inspection Posts
  • approval of bovine and porcine semen collection centres and artificial breeding

Find out more about this consultation

The second consultation is about introducing new charges for the following services:

  • approval and registration of animal by-products sites
  • approval of animal gatherings
  • administration of pet passports

Find out more about this consultation

The aim of the proposal changes is to reduce taxpayer subsidy of APHA services by transferring some of the costs to those who benefit from the agency’s services.

Additional information and details of meetings held with stakeholders about these proposals is available on the archived AHVLA web pages
