Food Partner Network News On July 19, 2021, the Australian Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Environment issued the 158-2021 Import Industry Recommendation Notice, which will update the licensing conditions for the import of uncooked pork.
From August 2, 2021, all uncooked imported pork license conditions will be updated in the department’s biosafety import conditions database.
The issuance and receipt process of imported raw frozen pork will be simplified to improve the efficiency of the industry and departments, while continuing to effectively manage biosafety and imported food risks.
From the date of assessment, a 12-month biosafety instruction will be issued, allowing movement between designated AA sites. When the broker submits the registration form for the first time, it needs to specify the entity details of the AA site location.
Biosafety industry participants operating each site must continue to keep records of individual cartons moving in and out of designated AA site locations for audit purposes.
