All export registered establishments that prepare, handle and store prescribed dairy products must have an Approved arrangement (AA).
To become export registered you must document and submit a proposed arrangement. This will be assessed by an auditor to determine if your documented system adequately meets requirements.
To become export registered, the business will need to gain an approved arrangement.
An approved arrangement is a documented food safety management system, that the establishment will operate under.
Its main function is to document how the business will continue to meet both Australian export legislation, and applicable importing country requirements, when producing food fit for human consumption, and eligible for export.
Before you complete the checklist
There are legislative requirements you need to meet in order to export your dairy products from Australia.
Step 1: Review checklist
Each section identifies:
- relevant parts of export legislation you must meet
- what you need to include in your documented processes
Step 2: Review legislation
Check the Export Control Act 2020 and Export Control (Milk and Milk Products) Rules 2021. These are the pieces of legislation that you need to comply with. Each question will refer to the relevant section of the legislation.
Step 3: If you need help
Contact our Export Facilitator if you need help completing the checklist. They can tell you what needs to be included. Please note, they cannot assess or advise if you’ll be found compliant at audit.
