Poultry industry calls for three year moratorium on IPPC costs

UK - Poultry producers will be unable to cope with new pollution controls unless the cost of implementing the regulations is reduced, claim industry leaders.

Industry representatives have joined forces to call for a three year moratorium on regulatory fees for new Integrated Pollution, Prevention and Control regulations.

The NFU, British Poultry Council and the British Egg Industry Council said costs must be reduced if producers were to cope with the new regulations.

Reducing the burden on the government – which normally recoups its inspection costs from farmers – was vital, they added.

Instead, poultry producers believe the industry should be allowed to regulate itself and carry out independent inspections for the new environmental regulations.
