Proposed fees for exhibiting animals in Queensland

About the consultation

The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries is seeking feedback from the exhibited animal industry and wider community about the proposed fee structure for licensing exhibited animal authority holders and monitoring their compliance with the Exhibited Animals Act 2015.

The Queensland Government has a principle that individuals and groups should pay for goods, products or services they directly benefit from.

Since August 2016 exhibited animal authority holders in Queensland have not been required to pay fees. Exhibitors were previously licensed under other legislation and some fees were previously paid under these arrangements.

The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries is seeking to introduce fees for exhibited animal authority holders.

Fees are proposed for granting authorities and accreditations, renewing, restoring and amending authorities and accreditations, transferring authorities, site assessments, and providing information from the register.

You can provide feedback about the proposed fee structure up until midnight, Tuesday 15 June 2021.
