month means one of the 12 months of the year.

Secretary means the Secretary of the Department.

         (2)   In these Regulations:

                (a)    a reference to a person who purchases relevant dairy produce shall be read as a reference to a person who purchases from the producer relevant dairy produce on which levy is imposed; and

               (b)    a reference to an authorised agent shall be read as a reference to a person appointed under regulation 8 to be an authorised agent.

2A           Gross value of production

         (1)   For subsection 6 (5) of the Act, the Minister must determine the amount of the gross value of production of milk, for a financial year (the relevant financial year), by using:

where:

A is the estimated value of milk to be produced in the relevant financial year.

B is the value of milk produced in the financial year immediately before the relevant financial year (the previous financial year).

               (b)    the day the approval takes effect; and

                (c)    the conditions of the approval.

               (b)    for any entitlement year after 2004 — before 1 November in the year before the entitlement year.

         (2)   An exporter is taken to have applied for entitlement to export regulated dairy produce for an entitlement year if the exporter:

               (b)    meets the criteria specified in the Guidelines for exports to the EU.

         (2)   In deciding what amount of entitlement to allocate to an exporter under subregulation (1), the Secretary must take into consideration the Guidelines for exports to the EU.

Note    The total amount of entitlement that the Secretary may allocate for an entitlement year is equal to the total shipped weight of regulated dairy produce that, under the law of the European Union, may be imported into the European regulated dairy market from Australia for the entitlement year.

         (3)   The Secretary must not allocate, to an exporter, entitlement to export regulated dairy produce for an entitlement year if:

                (a)    the exporter was allocated entitlement to export the produce in the 2 years before the entitlement year; and

               (b)    the exporter:

                          (i)    did not export any of the produce to the European regulated dairy market in those 2 years; or

                         (ii)    transferred, whether or not to a holder of entitlement, all of the entitlement temporarily in those 2 years.

         (4)   Subregulation (3) does not apply if the exporter (the transferor):

                (a)    transferred the entitlement temporarily to another exporter (the transferee) for the purpose of enabling the transferee to export regulated dairy produce on behalf of the transferor; and

               (b)    notified the Department, in accordance with paragraph 2.17 (1) (e), of the purpose of the transfer.

         (5)   If, in accordance with subregulation (3), an amount of entitlement for an entitlement year is not allocated to an exporter, the Secretary may:

                (a)    if, in the 2 years before the entitlement year, the entitlement was transferred to the same exporter — allocate the amount of entitlement to that exporter; or

               (b)    if paragraph (a) does not apply — invite exporters to apply for the amount of entitlement.

         (6)   This regulation does not require the Secretary to allocate entitlement to a particular exporter, or to any exporters, if the Secretary considers that it would not be in the best interests of the dairy industry to make the allocation.

2.13        Entitlement account and notice of entitlement

         (1)   If entitlement to export is allocated to an exporter under regulation 2.12, the Secretary:

                (a)    must create an entitlement account for the exporter’s entitlement; and

               (b)    must give to the exporter written notice of the allocation.

         (2)   Notice under paragraph (1) (b) must include:

                (a)    details of the regulated dairy produce to which the entitlement relates; and

               (d)    the conditions of the entitlement; and

                (e)    a statement to the effect that, if the exporter is dissatisfied with the amount of entitlement allocated, the exporter may apply to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for review of that decision.

         (3)   If entitlement to export is not allocated to an exporter that meets the requirements in paragraphs 2.12 (1) (a) and (b), the Secretary, within 7 days after making the decision:

                (a)    must give to the exporter a written notice that sets out the reasons for the decision; and

               (b)    must include in the written notice a statement to the effect that, if the exporter is dissatisfied with the Secretary’s decision, the exporter may apply to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for review of the decision.

Note   See regulation 2.32 concerning review of decisions.

2.14        Application fee — entitlement to export

         (1)   If an exporter is allocated, under regulation 2.12, entitlement to export, the exporter must pay an application fee in respect of the exporter’s application for the entitlement.

         (2)   The application fee payable by an exporter is 0.3 of a cent for each kilogram of regulated dairy produce allocated, under regulation 2.12, to the exporter for the entitlement year to which the application relates.

2.15        Conditions of entitlement to export

                Entitlement to export that is allocated, under regulation 2.12, to an exporter for an entitlement year is subject to the following conditions:

                (a)    the amount of regulated dairy produce exported by the exporter for the entitlement year must not exceed the amount of entitlement allocated to the exporter for that produce;

               (b)    the exporter must, within 14 days after a significant change occurs, tell the Department in writing of the change;

                (c)    any other condition the Secretary considers appropriate.

2.16        Period of entitlement

         (1)   Entitlement to export that is allocated, under regulation 2.12, to an exporter for an entitlement year:

                (a)    commences on the later of:

                          (i)    1 January in the entitlement year; and

                         (ii)    the day the exporter pays the application fee under regulation 2.14; and

               (b)    continues to have effect until the earlier of:

                          (i)    the day the amount of regulated dairy produce exported by the exporter is equal to the amount of entitlement allocated to the exporter for that produce; and

                         (ii)    if the entitlement is withdrawn from the exporter under subregulation (2) — the day the entitlement is withdrawn.

         (2)   Any unused amount of an exporter’s entitlement may be withdrawn by the Secretary if, on or before 23 August in an entitlement year, the exporter:

                (a)    is not granted, under regulation 2.08, approval to export the unused amount of entitlement; or

               (b)    does not tell the Department, in writing, how the exporter intends to deal with the unused amount of entitlement.

Note   Before 20 August in each entitlement year, the Department will send a notice about the requirement in paragraph 2.16 (2) (b) to each exporter that is a holder of entitlement under regulation 2.12 or 2.17 for the entitlement year.

         (3)   If an unused amount of entitlement is withdrawn from an exporter under subregulation (2), the Secretary may allocate the amount to another exporter in accordance with the Guidelines for exports to the EU.

2.17        Transfer of entitlement to export

         (1)   An exporter (the transferor) that is a holder of entitlement may transfer all or part of the entitlement to another exporter (the transferee) if the transferor gives the Department written notice of the following information:

                (a)    the name of the transferor and the transferee;

               (b)    the entitlement account from which the entitlement is being transferred;

                (c)    if the transferee is a holder of entitlement to export the produce — the entitlement account to which the entitlement is being transferred;

               (d)    the amount of entitlement being transferred;

                (e)    whether the purpose of the transfer is to enable the transferee to export regulated dairy produce on behalf of the transferor;

                (f)    whether the transfer will be temporary or permanent.

         (2)   A transfer of entitlement does not take effect until the day the Department receives notice of the transfer under subregulation (1).

         (3)   If the Department receives notice under subregulation (1), the Secretary must:

                (a)    if the transferee is not a holder of entitlement to export the produce — create an entitlement account for the transferee’s entitlement; and

               (b)    record the transfer in the entitlement account of the transferor and the transferee.

         (4)   Entitlement that is transferred under this regulation is subject to the same conditions that applied to the entitlement before it was transferred.

         (5)   Paragraph 2.16 (1) (b) applies to entitlement that is transferred under this regulation as if the entitlement transferred were entitlement allocated under regulation 2.12.
