Deadline for submission of EFA Declarations (SAF4 and associated maps) extended

Monday, 11 May, 2015

DARD have today confirmed that they will accept EFA declarations without penalty up to 1 June 2015 while the deadline for submitting the Single Application will remain 15 May 2015.

This provision to amend an application covers changes to the use of fields already declared, increase to the area claimed by adding extra fields to an application, or subsequent changes arising from the amendments to any supporting documentation. Therefore, provided a Single Application Form has been submitted by 15 May, the provision to make amendments to that application would allow an EFA Declaration (i.e. the EFA Data Sheet (form SAF4) and associated map) to be submitted without penalty up to 31 May 2015.  As 31 May is a Sunday DARD will accept amendments on Monday 1 June.
