Proposal to amend the dairy official assurances specifications

MPI periodically asks for feedback on food safety issues that affect consumers and the food industry. You can make a submission (by post, email or fax) before the closing date. MPI analyses all submissions and considers how they might be included in final decisions.

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) invites submissions on this discussion document, which outlines proposals to amend the Animal Products (Official Assurances Specifications – Dairy Products) Notice 2011 (the dairy OAS). The dairy OAS specifies requirements relating to the issue and control of official assurances for dairy material and dairy product intended for export to countries that require certification.

The proposed amendments primarily relate to the mandating of new requirements triggered by the transition of dairy export certification from MP E-cert to AP E-cert; and the revocation and replacement of the current traceability provisions under clause 7 of the dairy OAS.
