APC Egg Producers' Committee

The APC Egg Producers’ Committee was established in 2002 after egg producers voted to replace the levy collected under the Poultry Industry (Trust Fund) Act with a Fee for Service under the Agricultural Produce Commission Act. 

The Committee covers all Western Australian egg producers.

Committee Membership

The Committee consists of four members all of whom are egg producers.

Committee members are elected for a three year period with terms commencing in June and ending in May of the relevant year. Members may apply for re-election once their period of tenure has expired.

When positions becomes vacant the Commission calls for applications from growers who might be interested in applying for membership on the Committee.  This is done by placing advertisements in statewide newspapers, on the APC website and in relevant industry newsletters. Should you have an interest in applying, please contact the Commission at apcmanager@agric.wa.gov.au and your name will be placed on a register of interested persons.

In line with good Committee governance, the Committee strives to achieve a balanced Board, with members possessing experience in a range of areas.

Fee for Service

The Poultry Industry (Trust Fund) Act 1947 was repealed on 31 January 2005 with the reserve funds of the Trust transferred to the APC Egg Producers’ Committee for benefit of the egg producing industry. 

To date the Committee has not introduced Fee for Service charges, electing instead to fund Committee initiatives from funds that were transferred to the Committee on the repeal of the Poultry Industry (Trust Fund) Act 1947.

Compliance

Collection of the WA egg industry Fee for Service will be governed by the Agricultural Produce (Egg Production Industry) Regulations 2006.
