(Issued by Department of Agriculture)
The draft report of the review into the Australian Standards for the Export of Livestock by air is now open for public consultation.
The independent review committee today released the draft report following completion of the first stage of the review into livestock exports by sea.
Stakeholders can make an individual submission or contact their representative body on the ASEL review stakeholder reference group to contribute to their broader submissions.
The consultation process will run through the department’s ‘Have your say’ platform until 18 July 2019, and submissions will be published on the department’s website to allow for a transparent consultation process.
In developing the draft report, the committee drew on submissions it received during consultation of an issues paper in April 2019 and an independent literature review.
The final report into the review of Australian Standards for the Export of Livestock by air is expected by September 2019.
