Contact: Animal products team

Background

The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) wants your feedback on a proposed Draft Animal Products Risk Management Programme (RMP) Template for Transport of Animal Material and Animal Products.

This new draft template applies to operators that transport animal material and animal products, including packaged dairy material and dairy products. It will replace the existing:

RMP Template for the Transport of Packaged Dairy Material and Dairy Products [PDF, 299 KB]

The RMP template is pre-approved on how a transport operator meets regulatory requirements. This simplifies and reduces the cost of developing an RMP.

Operators who wish to transport non-animal material or non-animal products can use this template for an RMP provided they meet the requirements, and have the additional processes evaluated, under the Animal Products Act 1999.
