Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order, which does not extend to Northern Ireland, prescribes the fees payable by the holder of certificates under section 6 of the Animal (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 (scientific procedure establishments) and under section 7 of the Act (breeding and supplying establishments).
For the period 1st January 1997 to 31st March 1997 the fee for scientific procedure establishments is made up of £98 plus £89 for each personal licensee whose place of primary availability is the establishment in question. For a breeding and supplying establishment which is not also a scientific procedure establishment the fee is £445.
From 1st April 1997 to 31st March 1998, and each financial year thereafter, the fee for scientific procedure establishments is made up of £150 plus £135 for each personal licensee whose place of primary availability is the establishment in question. For a breeding and supplying establishment which is not also a scientific procedure establishment the fee is £675. This changes the fee period from a calendar year to a financial year and increases the annual fee payable by a breeding and supplying establishment by £28, for a personal licence by £25 and by a breeding and supplying establishment which is not also a scientific procedure establishment by £123.
A compliance cost assessment of the effects that this Order will have on the costs of business is available from:
