This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This order, which comes into force on 30 October 2001, imposes a levy on certain deer products derived from deer farmed or raised in New Zealand. The products are—
The levy is payable to the New Zealand Deer Farmers' Association Incorporated. The persons primarily responsible for paying the levy are deer farmers, but the levy will in practice be paid by velvet traders or by the operators of deer slaughterhouses, velvet packing houses, or velvet pools and recovered from the farmer.
This order revokes and replaces the Commodity Levies (Farmed Deer Products) Order 1995. Unless earlier revoked, it will expire 6 years after it is made.
