Port Health Update - CLS Price Increase
Analytical Price Increase for Pesticide Analysis.
We have been advised of an increase in the cost of pesticide analysis by Concept Life Sciences from 1st March 2018.
Concept Life Sciences have been able to hold their prices for the last 3 years but will be increasing their charges by 2.1% this week.
This will currently affect samples of lemons, peppers, okra, pomegranates and any other fresh or frozen produce we sample. Tea and vine leaves are not currently analysed by CLS, so will not be affected by this price increase. The price charged will be based on the date the consignment was sampled.
We will notify you of any of any further analytical price increases as we are advised of them and of the outcome of our charges review which is currently being undertaken. The POAO charges have already been reviewed and are not part of the current review.
