This document provides an overview of:
the Risk Management Programme Template for Farm Dairies - Export Eligible Milk (The RMP
the documents that comprise the template;
any supporting documents and guidance; and
the requirements of the legislation.
This document also provides guidance on completing the Risk Management Programme (RMP)
Template. This explains the additional:
farm dairy water requirements;
the application of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP); and
identification and control of risk factors associated with wholesomeness, labelling, representation and eligibility.
Despite the general requirement that a risk management programme is tailored to the
individual business concerned, section 12(3A) of the Animal Products Act 1999 (“the
Act”) allows for a risk management programme for a particular business, or part of a
business, to be based on a template, a model, or a code of practice, if in the view of the
Director-General the template, model or code of practice is valid and appropriate for
businesses of that kind.
