Protection of the Environment Operations (General) Regulation 2009
6 Changes in licence fee period
(1) The EPA may, by notice in writing given to the licence holder, change a licence fee period for a licence to provide common licence fee periods for different licences held by the same person or for other good cause. The notice has effect according to its tenor.(2) The EPA may change a licence fee period on the application of the licence holder or on its own initiative. The EPA may decline to deal with an application unless the licence holder pays the EPA such reasonable fee as the EPA determines for dealing with the application.(3) If a licence fee period is changed under this clause, the total of the licence fees for the licence in respect of all the periods affected by the change is, despite anything to the contrary in this Regulation, the same as it would have been if the change had not been made.(4) The EPA is, because of subclause (3), to make any refunds in respect of fees already paid or require payment of any additional amount of fees for relevant licence fee periods.(5) Any such additional amount is to be paid by the licence holder to the EPA not later than 60 days after notice is given of the change in licence fee periods under this clause.(6) The provisions of Division 5 relating to the payment of interest on unpaid fees applies to any such additional amount.
