You may only export animals or animal products if they come from premises that comply with international standards or the legislation of the importing country. These premises could be an approved abattoir, quarantine station, artificial insemination centre, embryo collection centre, farm, feedlot, food processing factory, food storage premises, etc.
- Contact your nearest Provincial State Veterinarian to apply for an inspection for export registration.
- Arrange with the Provincial State Veterinarian to inspect the facility.
- The Provincial State Veterinarian completes the inspection report, with motivation and recommendation, and sends it to the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries for approval.
- If approved, the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries will register the facility and issue an export registration certificate, which is normally valid for one year.
The time taken for registration to be finalised varies from province to province.
This depends on the province where the premises are located.
Forms can be obtained from the Provincial State Veterinarian or the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.
