Fees and charges for hazardous substances and new organisms

The fees and charges for hazardous substances and new organisms listed in the schedules below are effective from 1 October 2010. All prices are in New Zealand dollars and are inclusive of Goods and Services Tax (GST). If the fees change, you will be charged the fee that applied at the time you submitted your application.

We encourage you to talk to us before submitting your application so we can help you determine which application type you should use and the fee that will apply.

The principles we use to set our prices

We use six pricing principles to set the fees and charges that were agreed by the Government in August 2003. The principles state that prices should:

  • reflect actual costs
  • not discourage applicants
  • ensure predictability
  • recognise public benefits
  • enable us to anticipate planned  legislative change
  • not be a barrier to growth and innovation.

We aim to strike a balance between the first principle – the cost to process applications – and the remaining five that focus on encouraging and supporting the application process.
