Executive Summary

This consultation is on Scottish Government’s proposal to increase certain fees for seed testing, seed certification and associated seed functions to allow full–cost recovery.

Scottish Government’s standard approach to setting charges for public services is full cost recovery, in doing so it avoids unnecessary public expenditure. Charging also provides an incentive to use goods and services economically, efficiently and effectively.
