To inform participants in the livestock export industry of amendments to DAFF forms to reflect amendments to the Export Control (Animals) Order 2004.
On 1 March 2012, the amended Export Control (Animals) Order 2004 came into effect.
Under the amended Order, exporters must submit and receive approval from DAFF for an Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS) for consignments of feeder /slaughter livestock exported on or after 1 March 2012 to Indonesia, Turkey, Bahrain, Kuwait and Qatar and any new market. A list of markets that do not require an ESCAS is available on the DAFF website.
DAFF has developed a new form called Notice of Intention (NOI), Consignment Risk Management Plan (CRMP) and Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System for Live-stock Exports by Sea. This form must be used for all NOI, CRMP and ESCAS submissions for exports that require an ESCAS from 1 March 2012. The new form is not currently incorporated into TRACE so exporters using TRACE must attach a completed NOI, CRMP and ESCAS form to the TRACE submission.
Livestock exports to countries that do not require an ESCAS may continue to use the existing NOI and CRMP form.
DAFF has also amended the following forms to include the amendments to the revised Order. These forms must be used from 1 March 2012.
All of the forms are available on the DAFF website.
Please visit the website for more ESCAS information.
Exporters are encouraged to email the Live Animal Program or phone +61 2 6272 4581 if more information is required.
