Opting out of the scheme

Participants in the scheme are entitled to benefits such as assistance and compensation (in qualifying circumstances) relating to the priority pests/diseases being addressed by the scheme.

If producers do not want to contribute to the scheme, there is the option to opt out. Contributions are mandatory in the first instance, but a producer who has opted out can have their annual contributions refunded in full.

If you wish to opt out, you must do so between 1 and 30 June each year. See opting out for more information.
