About the document

The purpose of this Cost Recovery Impact Statement (CRIS) is to document wildlife trade permit cost recovery arrangements under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act), and transparently demonstrate compliance with the Australian Government Cost Recovery Guidelines (Cost Recovery Guidelines).

This CRIS also demonstrates that the fees are only partially recovering the cost of issuing wildlife trade permits to avoid creating an incentive to bypass the regulations and encourage illegal wildlife trade if full costs were recovered.
