Notice to Industry 9: Country-specific Appendix B certificates

​​​​[expand all]

Purpose

The purpose of this document is to provide country-specific Appendix B documents that are readily available to horse importers.

This document is provided for information only. To the extent that this document is inconsistent with any import permit, direction, industry notice or authorisation to enter a quarantine isolation facility, the terms and conditions of the import permit, direction, industry notice or authorisation to enter a quarantine isolation facility take precedence and will apply. Failure to comply with a condition of an import permit, direction, industry notice or authorisation to enter a quarantine isolation facility may constitute an offence.

Background

Australian import conditions for live horses require horses to be resident in approved countries for at least 60 days prior to export. When a horse has resided in an approved country/ies other than the country of export during the 60 days prior to export to Australia, an Appendix B certificate is required.

Appendix B certificates are to be completed by the Official Veterinarian for each country (other than the country of export) that a horse has resided in during the 60 days prior to export. The department has negotiated specific Appendix B certificates with approved countries.

Current Appendix B certificates

Negotiated Appendix B certificates for the​ relevant country can be found in the following links:

Sample certificates may not meet Australian Government accessibility requirements as they have not been prepared by the department. If you have difficulty accessing these files, visit web accessibility for assistance.

If a horse for export to Australia was resident in an approved country that does not have a country-specific Appendix B certificate listed here, please contact the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources via horses@agriculture.gov.au for the current status of that country’s specific Appendix B document.
