EMA Regulations – SI12 of 2007

SI 12 of 2007. Since practically all crop and livestock farmers store pesticides or veterinary vector control products and must transport fuel for their tractors, they are required to register and pay fees and this increases the cost of livestock production. To put this into perspective, the required annual fees are greater than revenue from the sale of one steer which, for a small-scale emergent commercial farmer, is a significant dent in profitability.

EMA Regulations – SI72 of 2009

SI 72 of 2009. This regulation has been applied to processing plants that have forklifts and generators – a necessity for most livestock processing plants due to erratic power supply. Processors are therefore being punished for poor electricity service provision. Through taxation on fuels and vehicle registration, a carbon tax that levies emissions is already in place. These levies therefore constitute a double taxation on abattoirs.
