The Welsh Ministers are designated(1) for the purposes of making Regulations under section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972(2) (“the 1972 Act”) in relation to the common agricultural policy of the European Union.

These Regulations make provision for a purpose mentioned in section 2(2) of the 1972 Act and it appears to the Welsh Ministers that it is expedient for references to EU instruments in these Regulations to be construed as references to those instruments as amended from time to time.

In accordance with section 56(1) and (2) of the Finance Act 1973(3), the Treasury consent to the making of these Regulations.

In accordance with section 10(3)(c) of the Animal Health and Welfare Act 1984(4), the relevant fees have been approved by the Treasury.

The Welsh Ministers make these Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by—

(a)

section 2(2) of, and paragraph 1A of Schedule 2(5) to, the 1972 Act;

(b)

section 56(1) and (2) of the Finance Act 1973(6);

(c)

section 1 of the Animal Health Act 1981(7); and

“veterinary officer” (“swyddog milfeddygol”) means a veterinary surgeon employed as such by the Welsh Ministers; and

“veterinary surgeon” (“milfeddyg”) means a person registered in the register of veterinary surgeons kept under section 2 of the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966(9).

(2) In these Regulations a reference to—

(a)Regulation (EC) No 2160/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 November 2003 on the control of salmonella and other specified food-borne zoonotic agents(10),

(b)Council Directive 90/429/EEC laying down the animal health requirements applicable to intra-Community trade in and imports of semen of domestic animals of the porcine species(11), or

(c)Council Directive 2009/158/EC of 30 November 2009 on animal health conditions governing intra-Community trade in, and imports from third countries of, poultry and hatching eggs(12),

is to be construed as a reference to that instrument as amended from time to time.

Refund of Fees

3.  If any application for which a fee is payable under or by virtue of these Regulations is withdrawn before determination of the application, the Welsh Ministers must refund to the applicant such proportion of any fee paid in respect of that application as the Welsh Ministers think fit, having regard to any reasonable costs incurred by the Welsh Ministers in connection with the application.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations make provision for consolidation and increase of several fees payable to the Welsh Ministers in the field of animal health into one statutory instrument. The fees are collected by an executive agency of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs known as the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA). They apply in relation to Wales.

The fees in regulation 4 and Schedule 1 are payable in relation to activities required under Regulation (EC) No 2160/2003 and in accordance with salmonella national control programmes for poultry. The Control of Salmonella in Poultry (Wales) Order 2008 (S.I. 2008/524 (W.50)) is amended by regulation 4.

The fees in regulation 6 and Schedule 2 are payable in relation to approvals for the purpose of the poultry health scheme established under Council Directive 2009/158/EC and the Trade in Animals and Related Products Regulations (Wales) 2011 (S.I. 2011/2379 (W.252)).

The fees in regulation 7 and Schedule 3 are payable in relation to approvals for the purpose of obtaining bovine semen in accordance with the Bovine Semen (Wales) Regulations 2008 (S.I. 2008/1040 (W.110)), which are amended by regulation 7.

The fees in regulation 8 and Schedule 4 are payable in relation to approvals for the purpose of obtaining porcine semen in accordance with the Artificial Insemination of Pigs (England and Wales) Regulations 1964 (S.I. 1964/1172) and the Artificial Insemination of Pigs (EEC) Regulations 1992 (S.I. 1992/3161).

The fees in regulation 9 and Schedule 5 are payable in relation to approvals for the purpose of collection, production and transfer of bovine embryos in accordance with the Bovine Embryo (Collection, Production and Transfer) Regulations 1995 (S.I. 1995/2478).

The fees in regulation 10 and Schedule 6 are payable in relation to inspection of consignments of live animals at border inspection posts in accordance with the Trade in Animals and Related Products (Wales) Regulations 2011 (S.I. 2011/2379 (W.252)).

These Regulations revoke existing fee instruments in relation to animal health (regulation 11).

The fee levels provided for in this instrument form part of a phased move towards full cost recovery of fees as explained in the Explanatory Memorandum. Some fees are substantially increased from existing fees because they have remained unchanged for many years. A detailed comparison of the existing and new fees is provided in an annex to the Explanatory Memorandum.

The Welsh Ministers’ Code of Practice on the carrying out of Regulatory Impact Assessments was considered in relation to these Regulations. As a result, a regulatory impact assessment has been prepared as to the likely costs and benefits of complying with these Regulations. A copy can be obtained by emailing endemics@wales.gsi.gov.uk.
