Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, May 2016
A transfer certificate is a document which is completed by an establishment who is dispatching product to another establishment within Australia, possibly for further processing. A completed transfer certificate ensures that information about the product being transferred is maintained throughout the export chain, and provides evidence to the receiving establishment, and assurance to international trading partners, that importing country requirements have been met.
Some importing countries require very precise traceability and assurances, for certain animal by-products. The department has created two templates which can be used to trace the transfer of products from one establishment to another.
These templates can be used as they are, or modified to best meet the needs of a particular business (including additional declarations for other specific markets, as required).
