The Inspection

RPA inspections are full cross compliance inspections of the land that is used to claim payment through the Basic Payment Scheme.

Paperwork

An officer from the Rural Payments Agency will arrive on your farm and go through a set of questions to determine the following:

  • Farming practices
  • Details about the farm and business
  • Schemes the business is part of

The documents that the RPA would expect to see from the farmer would be:

  • NVZ Records (if applicable)
  • Livestock Movement Records
    • Licences
    • Passports
    • Holding Register
    • Herd Register

Farm Inspection

  • Silage (pits and/or bales)
  • Manure storage
    • Slurry
    • Other manures if within the yard
  • Agricultural Fuel storage
  • Oil storage
  • PPP storage
  • Dairy Chemical storage
  • Walk all land claimed for BPS
Remember it is the claimant’s responsibility to notify the RLR/RPA of any changes to land and boundaries, via an RLE1 form.
