Draft Recommendations

The committee has developed draft recommendations for improving the Australian Standards for the Export of Livestock. This will reset the baseline for livestock export health and welfare standards.

In preparing its draft recommendations, the committee considered:

  • issues raised by stakeholders during consultation
  • an independent literature review
  • outcomes from earlier review processes
  • requirements of their Terms of Reference.

The committee is consulting widely to ensure the standards capture the diverse views of stakeholders affected by the changes. You are encouraged to make a submission to help the committee finalise its report.
