Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System - Development of a risk management and quality assurance program

01/02/2014

The Australian Government introduced a regulatory framework for the live export trade in 2011 that covers the entire supply chain in overseas market places from the point of disembarkation to the point of slaughter.

The Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS) places the responsibility on Australian exporters to maintain control and ensure measurable animal welfare outcomes in-market. The livestock export industry has developed a portfolio of research to assist the industry in implementing ESCAS, and also the recommendations of the Independent Review of Australia’s Livestock Export Trade, also known as the Farmer Review.

This project considered the feasibility and requirements of a risk management and quality assurance program to complement ESCAS, that includes the portfolio of research already developed by the industry and Government.
