To advise export registered establishments intending on preparing and exporting oaten hay to China, of registration audits in April 2013 by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), People’s Republic of China.
In order to strengthen China’s quarantine inspection management of the import and export of feed and feed additives, AQSIQ implemented Administrative Measures of Inspection, Quarantine and Supervision on Import and Export Feed and Feed Additives (AQSIQ Decree No.118). As a result, DAFF export registered establishments intending on preparing and exporting oaten hay to China must be registered with AQSIQ.
AQSIQ will conduct registration audits in April 2013 of Australian export establishments wishing to export oaten hay to China that are not currently registered with AQSIQ. Establishments requesting AQSIQ registration will be subject to an on-site audit by AQSIQ officials as part of the registration process. All costs associated with the AQSIQ officials (travel and accommodation) are to be borne by industry. Those who are currently registered can be found listed on the website.

- Advise Grain and Seed Exports Program by 1 March 2013 to request registration by AQSIQ.
- Ensure preparation and export inspection of consignments of oaten hay for export to China are conducted at DAFF export registered establishments registered with AQSIQ.
