The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and the Environment has a series of laboratories responsible for carrying out analyses in the field of animal and molecular genetics, planned, coordinated and targeted. technically by the Directorate-General for Health of Agricultural Production, in accordance with Article 9.1.g of Royal Decree 401/2012 of 17 February 2012, for the development of the basic organic structure of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment. These include the Central Veterinary Laboratory in Algette (Madrid), and the Central Laboratory of Animal Health in Santa Fe (Granada), whose services generate an additional cost that is not attributable to the normal development of management administrative.

Well, Law 8/1989, of 13 April, of taxes and public prices, sets out in Title III, the rules on the concept, value, fixing and administration of public prices. Article 24 defines the latter as the financial benefits which are satisfied by the provision of services or the performance of activities under the law of the public when, in addition, such services or activities are provided by the sector private, be of voluntary request on the part of the administered.

The requests for analysis to perform the above activities have been increased in recent years, as well as the complexity of the analytical methods used, which makes it necessary to standardise carrying out the analytical activities and adapting their economic and administrative management to the existing rules on public expenditure and revenue.

On December 29, 2012, Order AAA/2807/2012 of 21 December 2012, which sets public prices for the performance of animal health and genetic laboratory services, was published in order to guarantee the standardisation in the performance of analytical activities as well as the adequacy of their economic and administrative management to the current standards.

After finding difficulties in implementing the Order, a thorough review of the Order has been carried out, with a number of changes being made, in the amounts of public prices, as well as the provision of a special attention to animal health analyses in the case of exports, so that, in order to facilitate its application and due to legal certainty, a new order should be issued to fix public prices in accordance with the (a) laid down in Articles 24 and 26.1 (a) of Law 8/1989 of 13 April 1989 on Public Prices and Rates and repealing Order AAA/2807/2012 of 21 December 2012.
