If you move animals more than 65km as part of your business activity you must have a transport authorisation issued by the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA). Animal transport authorisations last for five years and a significant number are due for renewal in 2022.     APHA is reminding transporters to apply for renewal as early as possible, and certainly before their current authorisation expires, to ensure they can continue to operate. There is no cost to renewing a transport authorisation but transporting animals without the correct authority carries a heavy penalty.
