Current version for 6 January 2017 to date (accessed 27 April 2017 at 15:20)
Part 9 Division 5 Section 117C
117C   Industry levies
(1)  The Food Authority may levy a contribution towards the cost of the administration of this Act on any person, or member of a class of persons, who is subject to the requirements of a food safety scheme, but only if authorised to do so by the provisions of a food safety scheme.
(2)  A levy under this section is to be of an amount, or calculated on a basis, specified in the relevant food safety scheme.
(3)  The Food Authority is to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, that money received from levies imposed under this section in relation to an industry or sector of industry that is subject to a food safety scheme is not used to cross-subsidise the expenses of the Food Authority in carrying out its functions in relation to any other industry or sector of industry that is subject to a food safety scheme.
(4)  Nothing in this section prevents a cost of a kind referred to in this section from being covered by a licence fee charged under a food safety scheme.
