Applications will not be accepted until 1 November 2020.

We assess completed applications in order of submission.

Initially, you can apply for up to 150,000 tonnes per year.

You must submit a valid contract when you apply. This contract must:

How to change your reservation

Feed grain reservations can be:

An exporter can request their reservation be varied for:

You must notify us when your contract is cancelled. We will cancel the reservation and the quota will be returned. You cannot apply for another reservation for 4 weeks, unless you have used at least 75% of your reservation.

If you have quota remaining after completing a contract, you can return this volume.

You can vary or cancel your reservation by:

Lapsing reservations

If you don’t use any of your quota reservation for a contract, you will not be able to apply for another reservation until 1 May of the next quota year.

Make sure to vary or cancel your reservation to avoid an exclusion.
