To maintain the health and welfare of animals the export of livestock from Australia is governed by two regulations that include the Australian Standards for the Export of Livestock (ASEL) that governs from on-farm within Australia to discharge within the importing country. The second part of the livestock export journey is governed by the Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS) from discharge within the importing country to processing of the animal.
To maintain the health and welfare of livestock during the export journey, vessels must be certified to meet requirements for transporting livestock.
