             (6)  An application that does not meet the requirements in subregulations (4) and (5) is not a valid application.

2.09  Secretary may ask for further information

             (1)  For the purpose of verifying that an applicant is a dairy manufacturer, or has made a valid application, the Secretary may ask the applicant to provide further information.

             (2)  The request must:

                     (a)  be made in writing; and

                     (b)  identify the information required; and

                     (c)  state the date by which the applicant must give the information to the Secretary.

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

                     (b)  include a statement advising that, if the dairy manufacturer is dissatisfied with the Secretary’s decision, the dairy manufacturer may apply to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for review of the decision.

Note:          See regulation 2.41 concerning review of decisions.

2.11  Allocation of annual quota if applications for category exceed total available quota

             (1)  In this regulation:

requested allocation, in relation to an applicant, means the amount of quota that the applicant applied for under regulation 2.08 in the category being allocated.

set‑aside amount means:

                     (a)  2% of the total available quota for all categories of dairy produce other than US FTA Non‑fat Dried Milk Powder and Skim Milk Powder; and

                     (b)  zero for the category US FTA Non‑fat Dried Milk Powder and Skim Milk Powder.

Allocation if set‑aside amount is not zero

             (2)  If the set‑aside amount for a category is not zero, the following steps show how to work out the amount of annual quota allocated to each applicant.

 

Preliminary allocation

Step 1

For each applicant, work out the preliminary allocation of quota using the formula:

where:

generally available quota means the amount of quota remaining when the set‑aside amount is withdrawn from the total available quota.

 

ARME (or applicant’s regulated market exports), in relation to a category of dairy produce, means the weight of produce, matching the physical description of produce in the category, that was exported by the applicant to the regulated market during the 3 financial years immediately preceding the current financial year.

Example

For the category US WTO Cheddar Cheese, the ARME includes all of the applicant’s exports of cheddar cheese to the United States of America, regardless of the tariff rate that applied to the cheese when it entered that country.

 

TRME (or total regulated market exports), in relation to a category of dairy produce, means the weight of produce, matching the physical description of produce in the category, that was exported by all applicants to the regulated market during the 3 financial years immediately preceding the current financial year.

AGE (or applicant’s global exports), in relation to a category of dairy produce, means the weight of produce, matching the physical description of produce in the category, that was exported by the applicant to anywhere in the world (including the regulated market) during the 3 financial years immediately preceding the current financial year.

 

TGE (or total global exports) in relation to a category of dairy produce, means the weight of produce, matching the physical description of produce in the category, that was exported by all applicants to anywhere in the world (including the regulated market) during the 3 financial years immediately preceding the current financial year.

Note:          For the category US FTA Creams and Ice Cream, the amounts of produce and quota will be measured by volume in litres and kilolitres—see regulation 2.06.

Step 2

If the preliminary allocation for any applicant is greater than the applicant’s requested allocation, withdraw from that applicant the quota in excess of the requested allocation.

The total amount of quota withdrawn from these applicants is the additional amount.

Allocate all of the additional amount as extra quota to the applicants that have less than their requested allocation (the eligible applicants), so that each eligible applicant receives a proportion of the additional amount equal to the applicant’s proportion of the total preliminary allocations to all eligible applicants.

Repeat this step if any applicant has more than the applicant’s requested allocation as a result of being allocated extra quota.

Step 3

If no applicant’s allocation after step 2 was less than 60 tonnes, repeat steps 1 and 2, recalculating the preliminary allocation using the total available quota instead of the generally available quota.

When steps 1 and 2 have been repeated, the next step to use is step 8.

Each applicant’s maximum allocation is equal to the applicant’s requested allocation.

Distribution of set‑aside amount

Step 4

If any applicant’s allocation after step 2 was less than 60 tonnes, that applicant is a small applicant.

For each applicant that is not a small applicant, the maximum allocation is equal to the applicant’s requested allocation.

For each small applicant, the maximum allocation is equal to the lesser of:

(a) 60 tonnes; and

(b) the applicant’s requested allocation.

The small applicants that have less than their maximum allocation are the eligible applicants.

If there are no eligible applicants, the next step to use is step 6.

If there is at least 1 eligible applicant, divide the set‑aside amount by the number of eligible applicants and add the result to each eligible applicant’s allocation.

Step 5

If, after step 4, any small applicant’s allocation is more than the applicant’s maximum allocation, withdraw from that applicant the quota in excess of the maximum allocation.

The total amount of quota withdrawn from these applicants is the additional amount.

The small applicants that have less than their maximum allocation are the eligible applicants.

If there are no eligible applicants, go to step 6.

 

If there is at least 1 eligible applicant, divide the additional amount by the number of eligible applicants and add the result to each eligible applicant’s allocation.

Repeat this step if any small applicant has more than the applicant’s maximum allocation as a result of being allocated extra quota.

Step 6

If any of the total available quota is unallocated after step 5, allocate all of the unallocated quota to the applicants that are not small applicants and that have less than their maximum allocation (the eligible applicants), so that each eligible applicant receives a proportion of the unallocated quota equal to the applicant’s proportion of the total preliminary allocations to all eligible applicants.

Step 7

If, as a result of being allocated extra quota in step 6, any applicant now has more than the applicant’s maximum allocation, withdraw from that applicant the quota in excess of the maximum allocation.

The total amount of quota withdrawn from these applicants is the additional amount.

Allocate all of the additional amount as extra quota to the applicants that are not small applicants and that have less than their maximum allocation (the eligible applicants), so that each eligible applicant receives a proportion of the additional amount equal to the applicant’s proportion of the total preliminary allocations to all eligible applicants.

Repeat this step if any applicant has more than the applicant’s maximum allocation as a result of being allocated extra quota.

Deduction of penalties

Step 8

If a penalty has been imposed on an applicant by regulation 2.19, withdraw the amount of the penalty from the applicant’s allocation.

The total amount of quota withdrawn from these applicants is the additional amount.

Allocate all of the additional amount as extra quota to the applicants that have less than their maximum allocation and that have not had a penalty withdrawn (the eligible applicants), so that each eligible applicant receives a proportion of the additional amount equal to the applicant’s proportion of the total preliminary allocations to all eligible applicants.

Step 9

If, as a result of being allocated extra quota in step 8, any applicant now has more than the applicant’s maximum allocation, withdraw from that applicant the quota in excess of the maximum allocation.

The total amount of quota withdrawn from these applicants is the additional amount.

Allocate all of the additional amount as extra quota to the applicants that have less than their maximum allocation and that have not had a penalty withdrawn (the eligible applicants), so that each eligible applicant receives a proportion of the additional amount equal to the applicant’s proportion of the total preliminary allocations to all eligible applicants.

Repeat this step if any applicant has more than the applicant’s maximum allocation as a result of being allocated extra quota.

US WTO quota minimums

Step 10

If the category is a US WTO category and any applicant has an allocation of less than 10 tonnes, withdraw that applicant’s allocation.

The total amount of quota withdrawn from these applicants is the additional amount.

Allocate all of the additional amount as extra quota to the applicants that have an allocation of at least 10 tonnes and less than their maximum allocation (the eligible applicants), so that each eligible applicant receives a proportion of the additional amount equal to the applicant’s proportion of the total preliminary allocations to all eligible applicants.

Step 11

If, as a result of being allocated extra quota in step 10, any applicant now has more than the applicant’s maximum allocation, withdraw from that applicant the quota in excess of the maximum allocation.

The total amount of quota withdrawn from these applicants is the additional amount.

Allocate all of the additional amount as extra quota to the applicants that have an allocation of at least 10 tonnes and less than their maximum allocation (the eligible applicants), so that each eligible applicant receives a proportion of the additional amount equal to the applicant’s proportion of the total preliminary allocations to all eligible applicants.

Repeat this step if any applicant has more than the applicant’s maximum allocation as a result of being allocated extra quota.

Rounding

Step 12

Round all allocations as they stand after step 11 to the nearest kilogram, with 0.5 of a kilogram to be rounded up.

If this rounding makes the sum of all allocations greater than the total available quota, round all allocations as they stand after step 11 down to the nearest kilogram instead.

Allocation if set‑aside amount is zero

             (3)  If the set‑aside amount for a category is zero, the following steps show how to work out the amount of annual quota to be allocated to each applicant.

 

Preliminary allocation

Step 1

For each applicant, the preliminary allocation of quota is:

where:

total available quota has the meaning given by regulation 2.01.

ARME (or applicant’s regulated market exports), in relation to a category of dairy produce, means the weight of produce, matching the physical description of produce in the category, that was exported by the applicant to the regulated market during the 3 financial years immediately preceding the current financial year.

TRME (or total regulated market exports), in relation to a category of dairy produce, means the weight of produce, matching the physical description of produce in the category, that was exported by all applicants to the regulated market during the 3 financial years immediately preceding the current financial year.

AGE (or applicant’s global exports), in relation to a category of dairy produce, means the weight of produce, matching the physical description of produce in the category, that was exported by the applicant to anywhere in the world (including the regulated market) during the 3 financial years immediately preceding the current financial year.

TGE (or total global exports) in relation to a category of dairy produce, means the weight of produce, matching the physical description of produce in the category, that was exported by all applicants to anywhere in the world (including the regulated market) during the 3 financial years immediately preceding the current financial year.

Step 2

If the preliminary allocation for any applicant is greater than the applicant’s requested allocation, withdraw from that applicant the quota in excess of the requested allocation.

 

The total amount of quota withdrawn from these applicants is the additional amount.

 

Allocate all of the additional amount as extra quota to the applicants that have less than their requested allocation (the eligible applicants), so that each eligible applicant receives a proportion of the additional amount equal to the applicant’s proportion of the total preliminary allocations to all eligible applicants.

 

Repeat this step if any applicant has more than the applicant’s requested allocation as a result of being allocated extra quota.

Deduction of penalties

Step 3

If a penalty has been imposed on an applicant by regulation 2.19, withdraw the amount of the penalty from the applicant’s allocation.

The total amount of quota withdrawn from these applicants is the additional amount.

Allocate all of the additional amount as extra quota to the applicants that have less than their requested allocation and that have not had a penalty withdrawn (the eligible applicants), so that each eligible applicant receives a proportion of the additional amount equal to the applicant’s proportion of the total preliminary allocations to all eligible applicants.

Step 4

If, as a result of being allocated extra quota in step 3, any applicant now has more than the applicant’s requested allocation, withdraw from that applicant the quota in excess of the requested allocation.

The total amount of quota withdrawn from these applicants is the additional amount.

Allocate all of the additional amount as extra quota to the applicants that have less than their requested allocation and that have not had a penalty withdrawn (the eligible applicants), so that each eligible applicant receives a proportion of the additional amount equal to the applicant’s proportion of the total preliminary allocations to all eligible applicants.

Repeat this step if any applicant has more than the applicant’s maximum allocation as a result of being allocated extra quota.

Rounding

Step 5

Round all allocations as they stand after step 4 to the nearest kilogram, with 0.5 of a kilogram to be rounded up.

If this rounding makes the sum of all allocations greater than the total available quota, round all allocations as they stand after step 4 down to the nearest kilogram instead.

2.12  Notification of allocation

             (1)  If annual quota is allocated to a dairy manufacturer under regulation 2.10, the Secretary must give the dairy manufacturer a written notice of the allocation as soon as practicable.

             (2)  The notice must include:

                     (a)  the category of dairy produce to which the quota relates; and

                     (b)  the amount of quota allocated; and

                     (e)  the conditions to which the allocation is subject.

2.15  Conditions on allocation

                   The allocation of annual quota is subject to the following conditions:

                     (a)  the quota holder must, within 14 days after a significant change occurs, tell the Secretary in writing of the change;

                     (b)  any other condition the Secretary considers appropriate.

Division 2.3Return, loss or transfer of annual quota

2.16  Forfeiture of annual quota

                   The Secretary must withdraw any unattached amount of annual quota for a calendar year if the quota holder does not tell the Secretary, in writing, on or before 15 June in that year, how the quota holder intends to deal with the unattached quota.

Note:          Before 5 June each year, the Secretary will send a notice about the requirement in this regulation to each quota holder.

2.17  Voluntary return of annual quota

             (1)  At any time on or before the end of a calendar year, a holder of annual quota for the year may notify the Secretary in writing that the holder wishes to return an amount of unattached quota.

             (2)  The Secretary must withdraw the amount of quota from the holder’s allocation.

Note:          If the Secretary is notified of a return of quota after 15 June, the quota will be counted in determining a penalty under regulation 2.19.

2.18  Transfer of annual quota

             (1)  A holder of unattached annual quota for a calendar year (the transferor) may transfer some or all of the quota to another person (the transferee).

             (2)  It is not a transfer of quota if a quota holder authorises an agent to export dairy produce on behalf of the holder.

             (3)  A transfer is not validly made unless the transferor sends the Secretary a notice that includes the following:

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

                     (b)  the category of dairy produce;

                     (c)  the amount of quota being transferred;

                     (d)  whether the transferee is a dairy manufacturer.

Note:          If the transferee is not a dairy manufacturer, and the transferred quota is unused at the end of the calendar year, then the transferred quota will still be counted against the transferor in determining a penalty under regulation 2.19.

             (4)  If the Secretary receives a notice under subregulation (3), the Secretary must:

                     (a)  withdraw the transferred amount from the transferor’s annual quota; and

                     (b)  allocate that amount to the transferee.

             (5)  Annual quota that is transferred under this regulation is subject to the same conditions that applied to the quota before it was transferred.

2.19  Penalty on future allocation if annual quota remains unused

             (1)  In this regulation:

surplus quota, in relation to a dairy manufacturer, means the sum of the following amounts:

                     (a)  unused annual quota for a calendar year that the dairy manufacturer holds as at the end of 31 December;

                     (b)  annual quota for a calendar year that the dairy manufacturer returned under regulation 2.17 after 15 June;

                     (c)  an amount of annual quota for a calendar year to which the following apply:

                              (i)  the dairy manufacturer was the transferor of the quota under regulation 2.18;

                             (ii)  the transferee was not a dairy manufacturer;

                            (iii)  as at the end of 31 December, the quota is unused quota that is held by the transferee.

             (2)  For paragraph (1) (c), if:

                     (a)  annual quota for a calendar year was transferred to a transferee by more than one dairy manufacturer; and

                     (b)  as at the end of 31 December, the transferee holds unused annual quota;

the unused quota is to be distributed between the surplus quotas of the dairy manufacturers in proportion to the amount of quota that each dairy manufacturer transferred to the transferee.

             (3)  A penalty is imposed on a dairy manufacturer in relation to a category of dairy produce if:

                     (a)  the total available quota for a calendar year in relation to the category is less than 3 000 tonnes; and

                     (b)  the dairy manufacturer’s surplus quota for the year is more than 2% of the dairy manufacturer’s annual quota.

             (4)  A penalty is imposed on a dairy manufacturer in relation to a category of dairy produce if:

                     (a)  the total available quota for a calendar year in relation to the category is at least 3 000 tonnes; and

                     (b)  the dairy manufacturer’s surplus quota for the year is more than 1% of the dairy manufacturer’s annual quota.

Note:          For the category US FTA Creams and Ice Cream, quota will be measured in litres and kilolitres rather than kilograms and tonnes—see regulation 2.06.

             (5)  The amount of the penalty imposed is equal to the surplus quota.

             (6)  A penalty imposed on a dairy manufacturer by this regulation applies to the next allocation of annual quota to the dairy manufacturer under regulation 2.10.

Note:          Because a penalty is imposed at the end of a calendar year, the next allocation will relate to quota that is for use no earlier than the year after next. For example, surplus quota remaining at the end of 2010 will result in a penalty applying to the allocation of quota for use in 2012 at the earliest. If no quota is allocated to the dairy manufacturer for 2012, the penalty would apply to the allocation for 2013.

             (7)  The penalty expires:

                     (a)  after the dairy manufacturer has been allocated annual quota under either subregulation 2.10 (3) or subregulation 2.10 (4); or

                     (b)  if the dairy manufacturer has not been allocated annual quota in that way—5 years after the end of the calendar year to which it relates.

Note 1:       Subregulation 2.10 (3) provides for allocation of annual quota when the total quota applied for in all valid applications is less than or equal to the total available quota. In those circumstances, the penalty will not reduce the dairy manufacturer’s allocation, but will expire under paragraph (a) of this provision.

Note 2:       A penalty imposed because of surplus quota in 2010 will expire at the end of 2015. This will occur if the dairy manufacturer has not received any allocations for the years 2012 to 2016 inclusive.

Division 2.4Allocation of FCFS quota

             (2)  If the amount of unallocated quota in relation to a category of dairy produce is greater than or equal to the amount of FCFS quota applied for, the Secretary must allocate to the applicant the amount of quota applied for.

             (3)  If the amount of unallocated quota in relation to a category of dairy produce is less than the amount of FCFS quota applied for, the Secretary may either:

                     (a)  allocate the unallocated quota to the applicant; or

                     (b)  not allocate the unallocated quota to the applicant.
