The person named was the subject of a Nitrates inspection by the Integrated Controls Division of my Department acting on behalf of the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government on the 6th of May 2010. This inspection uncovered discrepancies that were deemed to be intentional and a penalty of 20% was recorded against the 2010 Direct Payment for the person named.

The person named was informed of this decision and of his right to seek a review. He was also informed of his right to appeal the outcome of any review to the Independent Agriculture Appeals office. To date no such request has been received.
