ASEL 3.0

We have finalised ASEL 3.0. It will commence 1 November 2020. All livestock exported on or after this date must comply with ASEL 3.0.

Until this date, exporters must comply with the ASEL 2.3.

An independent Technical Advisory Committee conducted a consultative review of ASEL 2.3. The changes are based on their recommendations.

Find out how to transition to ASEL 3.0.
