Levy Collection

 If a levy imposed under section 3 is to be collected by a processor or dealer under section 6, the processor or dealer must remit the levy to CFC, or to the Commodity Board or person authorized by CFC, not later than the Monday following the week in which the levy was collected under that section and, in any other case, the producer must remit the levy to CFC, or to the Commodity Board or person authorized by CFC, not later than two weeks after the sale of the live chicken in interprovincial or export trade.
