General wool testing fees have increased by 2% for the 2013/14 wool selling season, effective from 1st July 2013.
The total cost for testing a typical 7 bale lot, including a Staple Length & Strength test, will increase by $1.42 from $68.35 to $69.77.
Users of AWTA’s Manual Core Sampling service should note that the fees for this service have increased by 10% reflecting the escalating cost of providing this service which is labour intensive and has a high occupational safety risk.
An amendment has been made to AWTA Terms & Conditions which now include a provision for charging a fee if a test request is cancelled after AWTA has undertaken sampling or testing activities associated with the request.
