To inform industry and Authorised Officers that Volume 7A of the Plant Export Operations Manual (PEOM) - Export Compliance Goods Storage (ECGS) is now accessible on the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) website.
ECGS is a key export reform initiative, developed in consultation with industry, moves the point of inspection for prescribed plant products from the point of export to earlier in the supply chain.
