The effect of the amendments is to ensure that the hourly rate for veterinary inspectors can be charged for inspections of pet animals on arrival at the border (rather than the flat rate for pet animals) if they require veterinary inspection. The hourly charge is $186.30. The amendments also clarify which rates apply in which cases.
