Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development
The National Agricultural Marketing Council has called on directly affected groups to register in its Register of Directly Affected Groups.
The agriculture, land reform and rural development department announced the call in Government Gazette 44103 in terms of the Marketing of Agricultural Products Act.
A Register of Directly Affected Groups is kept for each commodity listed as an agricultural product in the agricultural sector.
“A directly affected group means any group of persons, which is party to the production, sale, purchase, processing or consumption of an agricultural product and includes labour employed in the production or processing of such a product.”
The Register serves to bring applications for statutory measures (interventions in the agricultural sector in terms of the act) to the attention of directly affected groups.
Meanwhile, in Gazette 44126, the department invites applications for a quota import permit in terms of the rebate item 460.03/0207.14.9/01.07 for rebate of the full anti-dumping duty on bone-in-cuts of frozen chicken imported from or originating in the United States of America.
The permits will apply from 1 April 2021 until 31 March 2022.
Applications for the first quarter must be submitted within two weeks of the date of publication with different timeframes applying for the other quarters.
Permits, replacement permits and extension permits will cost R1 480.
