2020–21 budget impact on export Cost Recovery Implementation Statements
Australian Government policy is to recover the full cost of delivering export regulatory services. Under the Cost Recovery Guidelines (CRG), we must regularly document changes to regulatory charging activities through a Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS).
The most recent CRIS for export certification services were published in 2015. Consistent with CRG requirements, we are reviewing and updating the export CRIS. We aim to have new charges start from 1 July 2021.
Consultation on proposed Food and Plant Export CRIS took place in 2019 and 2020. Limited consultation was undertaken on Live Animal Exports with industry representatives in February 2020. Following this, the Australian Government announced the Busting Congestion for Agricultural Exporters package [PDF 211 KB] as part of the 2020–21 Budget. It includes measures impacting cost recovery arrangements for meat, dairy, fish and egg, non-prescribed goods, plant and live animal export.
Each 2020-21 CRIS describes the impact of the 2020–21 Federal Budget package Busting Congestion for Agricultural Exporters on exports cost recovery, including how we will implement the freezing of fees and charges in 2020–21.
The government has committed $71.1 million to improve the financial sustainability of export certification services by returning to full cost recovery of these services over time. A stepped return to full recovery will enable reforms to be rolled out while maintaining existing systems.
Each 2020-21 CRIS provides a starting point from which the cost base can be reviewed and adjusted going forward. This takes into consideration the reform implementation across export regulatory services.
Fees and charges shown in forward years of each CRIS are for illustrative purposes only. They show the impact of the package if applied to current pricing structures.
The 2020-21 CRIS are available for each export cost recovery arrangement.
