Risk management programmes for transport operators
If you transport animal products, including dairy, for export you can operate under a risk management programme (RMP) instead of a regulated control scheme. Find out how to develop and register an RMP.
Two ways to develop an RMP
If you decide to operate under an RMP for transporting animal products for export, then the way you develop your RMP differs depending on whether you already operate under an RMP for processing.
Adding transport activities to an existing RMP
If you are an operator of a processing premises already operating under a registered RMP, you can extend the RMP to cover transport using the template. This applies only if the products you process don't require temperature control. If you transport other operator’s goods then you need to have a written agreement between you regarding whose products you transport. Refer to appendix 1 of the template for more information.
Developing a new RMP
If you don't have a registered RMP, you'll need to develop one and get it registered.
Alternatively, you can operate under the Transport Regulated Control Scheme (RCS).
RMPs for transporters of dairy products
If you transport dairy products, MPI has developed a template to help you prepare your RMP.
