Transitioning commodities to NEXDOC

​​​We are replacing our Export Documentation System (EXDOC) with an upgraded system. This new system is called Next Export Documentation System (NEXDOC).

This new system does not change our existing certification arrangements. It is designed to improve product traceability and reporting and to automate manual documentation and assessment processes.


Commodities will be transitioned to NEXDOC in stages, and began with dairy on Monday 17 May 2021.

If you are a dairy exporter, please go to How to access NEXDOC page for registration information and user guides.

We will also have a system transition period where EXDOC and NEXDOC will continue to function in parallel. This will ensure that export trade is not disrupted.

For dairy, you will have until 5.00pm (AEST) Sunday 13 June 2021 to finalise and print any existing dairy RFP’s in EXDOC before the system is closed for this commodity.

Please note: China certificates issued out of EXDOC for dairy on or after 17 May 2021, have a high risk of being detained. To prevent this risk, please finalise and print all existing RFP’s for Dairy, in EXDOC by 5.00pm (AEST) 16 May 2021. Please lodge all new Request for Export (REX’s) in NEXDOC from 17 May 2021 onwards.

We will continue to keep you updated of future enhancements and releases.
