A focus of PPSA and the commodity associations is the reduction of red tape, regulatory burdens and business costs.
Examples of areas where PPSA and the commodity associations have been active through advocacy and government liaison include: the Emergency Services Levy, SA Water pricing, transport regulations, NRM and native vegetation clearance regulations and NRM water levies.
Primary producer representatives also provided input to the Small Business Commissioner in 2013 regarding the Farming Industry Dispute Resolution Code.
PPSA made a written submission on the Australian Government’s Agricultural Competitiveness Issues Paper.
PPSA and the commodity groups will continue to work in these areas.
