Risk management programmes for transport operators
If you transport animal products for export, including dairy products, you can operate under a risk management programme (RMP) instead of a regulated control scheme (RCS). Find out what your options are.
Two ways to develop a risk management programme
If you decide to operate under a risk management programme (RMP) for transporting animal products for export, there are 2 ways you can do this:
- If you already operate under a registered RMP for processing, you can add transport activities to that RMP.
- If you don't already have a registered RMP, you can create one, or you can operate under the transport regulated control scheme (RCS).
Adding transport activities to an existing RMP
If you're an operator of a processing premises that's already operating under a registered RMP, you can extend that RMP to cover your transport activities. Use the Processing premises RMP – Transport supporting system template to do this.
Note: You can only do this if the products you process don't require temperature control.
If you transport goods for other operators you must have a written agreement. You can find the template for this in Appendix 1 of the Processing premises RMP – Transport supporting system.

If you don't have an existing RMP
If you don't have a registered RMP that you can add your transport activities to, you'll need to either:
- create a new one and get it registered, or
- operate under the transport RCS.
