Updated implementation date for dairy NEXDOC

Following discussions with software vendors and the request for a 12 week implementation period, the decision has been made to move the Dairy NEXDOC release date from 30 May to 1 September.

This additional time will support software vendors to carry out transitional and implementation activities, improving the transition experience for exporters.

It is proposed from 1 September that all Dairy export documentation will transition from EXDOC to NEXDOC.

The department continues to liaise with trading partners on implementation of the new system, noting this could impact the implementation date.

Check the NEXDOC project page for updates.

Regular updates will be provided as implementation draws closer.
