Funding services and programmes
MPI provides a range of services and programmes to animal product operators under the APA. These are outlined below:
Animal product operators are directly provided with a number of services by MPI. The costs of these services are recovered through the fee charged to operators when they request the service. For example:
- official assurances.
MPI also delivers programmes across animal product sectors, such as setting of food safety, export and related standards. To recover the costs of these programmes animal products operators pay levies to MPI under the APA.
