To advise livestock exporters of an additional auditing requirement for all Exporter Supply Chain Assurance Systems (ESCAS).

The auditing requirement outlined in this EAN is effective for audits conducted on or after 1 June 2017.


Previous audit reports were required to include street address details for each facility. Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates have now become more widely used for identifying locations of facilities.


In addition to the requirements outlined in EAN 2015-06, independent audit reports for all markets (both Independent Initial Audit Reports (IIAR), and Independent Performance Audit Reports (IPAR)) must contain the GPS coordinates of each facility in the supply chain.
