Changes to ACRS Fees and Charges 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018


Since our inception in 2003, ACRS has been funded by assessment fees per process and site, and by tonnage levies on materials supplied to the certified standards. To provide a more transparent basis for ACRS fees to both applicants for certification and certificate holders, and a more stable foundation for ACRS current and future services from 1 July 2017 ACRS fees will begin to move to a new fee model consisting of assessment fees and a fee per certificate issued. The new system will come fully into force from 1 July 2018.

During the interim year, 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018, you will therefore find three fees charged: The assessment fees, the tonnage levy (reduced this year by 50% from 2016- 17,) and a new certificate fee per certificate (at an introductory rate for this year). The tonnage levy fee that ACRS has charged since its formation will be finally withdrawn at 30 June 2018.

As ACRS is a not-for-profit body, we are continuing to operate simply on a cost recovery, user-pays model, structured to cover our costs of providing the levels of service as demanded by industry and certificate users. For 2017-18 these costs are as shown in the notification letter and on the ACRS Website.

We assure you that in this, as in any future increases that might become necessary, ACRS will continue to be run as a not-for-profit organisation and deliver the required levels of service at the lowest possible cost.
