Standard export plans

SEPS can be combined when importing country and ASEL requirements are similar.
They will include all possible requirements for an export to that market.
The SEP will invoke any management plans applicable to discretionary requirements under ASEL.
The SEP is submitted as part of the approved arrangement and approved once by the Department.
Include management plans with your AA (where applicable to the market,species, class of livestock and mode of transport) for discretionary requirements under ASEL.
Plans attached to the arrangement as appendixes, to be applied when required by the specific requirements of the consignment, include:

Consignment Specific Export Plan (CSEP)
The SEP is used to form the basis of the consignment specific export plan (CSEP). As the name suggests, the CSEP details the specific parameters of individual consignments. A CSEP must be developed for every consignment.
As appropriate, the CSEP will invoke any of the management plans approved in the arrangement. In addition, the CSEP must also provide additional documentation specific to the consignment, such as:
✓ Dates of treatments or vaccinations
✓ Travel and load plan
✓ Heat stress risk assessment
The CSEP becomes a record of the consignment and is retained by the exporter. If an exporter is on the provisional performance level, the CSEP must be uploaded to TRACE as part of the documents required for each consignment. Once on level one or above (sample documents) the CSEP in an auditable document.
