Scientific Animal Protection Licensing Fees

We conduct an annual fee review to ensure that our fees cover the costs of services provided. While fees are applicable to new individual and establishment authorisations, no fee is charged for standard project applications. Additionally, there is a yearly maintenance fee for both individual and establishment authorisations.

Since 2023, the HPRA has been receiving funding from the Department of Health to support activities not covered by fees. These activities include inspections, collating statistical information, and providing assistance to the National Committee.
