These Regulations enable the Secretary of State to establish a procedure for the consideration and determination of appeals against a determination made by her in connection with Council Regulation (EC) No 1782/2003 (OJ No L 270, 21.10.2003, p.1), Commission Regulation (EC) No 2237/2003 (OJ No L 339, 24.12.2003, p52), Commission Regulation (EC) No 795/2004 (OJ No L 141, 30.4.2004, p1), Commission Regulation (EC) No 796/2004 (OJ No L 141, 30.4.2004, p18) or domestic legislation implementing any of those Regulations (regulation 4). The Regulations apply to holdings situated wholly or partly in England (regulation 3). The domestic legislation required to implement the Community legislation will be made from later this year.
The procedure may involve the consideration of the appeal by up to three persons appointed by the Secretary of State with a view to their making a recommendation to her about how the appeal should finally be determined. The Regulations give the Secretary of State the power to pay reasonable remuneration and expenses to appointed persons. They also enable the Secretary of State to charge appellants a fee not exceeding £100 in respect of appeal costs.
A full regulatory impact assessment has not been prepared for this instrument as it has no impact on the costs of business.
Further information about appeal procedures can be obtained from the Customer Relations Unit, Rural Payments Agency, PO Box 69, Reading RG1 3YD.
