Notes:

  2. The primary fee is all those cost associated with determining the licence application and includes all licensing section administration cost and the regulation unit cost of processing any associated documentation and undertaking an initial  inspection. These are recoverable along with the application.
  3. The secondary fees will include recoverable reasonably expected enforcement cost, including cost of officer competency  training and the cost of an interim compliance visit during the licence period. These are only recoverable once the licence is granted.
  4. The new legislation introduces new processes such as appeals, variations and revocations. It also allows operators to request  some visits such as variations, re-score, and appeals. Where such visits are attributed to non-compliance these costs are recoverable.
  5. Licensable activities, such as dangerous wild animals and zoo licences are not included in the new legislation, therefore their fees are unchanged.
  6. The duration of the licence will be based on the ability of the operator to demonstrate that they meet the conditions required for that licensable activity and their compliance environmental (animal accommodation) and management controls in place. They will be allocated a risk score and star rating based on these factors. The star rating will determine the length of the licence.
