EXDOC Developments


E-cert is an electronic government to government system designed to generate export certificates for traded food and agricultural commodities. The system generates an electronic message in place of the current paper certificate issued by the exporting country to the importing country to confirm food safety, animal and plant health and product compliance to legislative requirements.

Australia has been actively raising awareness of the benefits of electronic systems and has commenced trials with trading partners. Trials are an essential part of the implementation process and a number of tools are available to aid importing authorities in their preparation for trials.
