Export Control Rules

​​​We are developing Export Control Rules and other legislation to support the Export Control Bill 2017.

We are seeking feedback on the Consultation Draft Export Control Rules 2020 – Meat and Meat Products (the draft meat rules).

Submissions close 21 December 2018.

Register your interest to stay up to date about consultation opportunities on the draft meat rules and other commodity-specific rules as they are developed.

The Export Control Rules 2020 (the rules) are based on the current Export Control commodity orders and export-related provisions in the Australian Meat and Live-stock Industry Act 1997.

The rules will outline the requirements agricultural exporters must meet to export specific commodities, such as:

  • where and how products are prepared
  • when permits and certificates are necessary to export from Australia.

Your feedback is important. The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources will seek feedback as the rules are developed throughout 2018 and 2019. We encourage you to register your interest to stay up to date as they are developed.

The rules are a legislative instrument under the improved Export Control Act. They will still be subject to parliamentary checks and balances, in line with the current Orders.
