Cape Town - Tuesday, 22 December 2015: Due to numerous requests from potential applicants for more time to complete their  application  forms,  the  Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (the Department) has decided to shift the dates for receipting. The new receipting dates are from Monday, 01 February 2016 until Friday, 12 February 2016. Applicants must submit completed application form(s) at one of the venues (receipting centres) as set out in Table 1 during the dates and times stipulated. Application forms must not be faxed, posted or emailed. See “Important Information” on the application forms for more instructions on the completion and lodgment of applications. South African Persons (as defined by the MLRA) wishing to submit their completed application form(s) are required to bring the original identity document (individuals), company registration document (entities) and/or a letter authorizing the individual submitting the application on  behalf  of  the interested party to one of the receipting centres.  In  case  of  a  company or close corporation, the authorisation letter must be signed by the Managing Director or Managing Member. Where the Authorised Representative nominated in terms of a Resolution signs the authorization letter to appoint a representative, a copy of the Resolution must be produced.

The company’s or close corporation’s letter head should reflect the company’s or close corporations name and registration number; names of the directors or members; physical address company or close corporation and contact details of the company or close corporation. Applicants are advised that subsequent to receipting process, the Department will appoint a firm of Independent Auditors to verify the correctness and accuracy of information provided by applicants to the Department when applying for rights.
