LiveCorp represents exporter interests to key stakeholders and works closely with the Australian Government (DAFF), including through the Industry Government Implementation Group (IGIG), to develop and enhance supply chain processes and efficiencies. Approximately 25% of LiveCorp’s total budget is invested in providing support to exporters to improve components of their livestock export supply chain.
In recent times, the LEP’s supply chain activities have focused on providing industry input to government during the development and refinement of ESCAS and in supporting exporters and importers through the implementation of ESCAS. Given ESCAS requires exporters to ensure compliance with OIE guidelines, the LEP’s supply chain activities also have a significant animal welfare focus.
The in-market supply chain programs include:
Conducting supply chain gap analyses and providing advice on animal welfare and system gaps and improvements
Providing technical advice on supply chain infrastructure, systems and procedures
Conducting training programs that increase the animal welfare and handling skills, capacity and awareness of workers in overseas supply chains and support a supply chain’s ability to implement ESCAS.
LiveCorp is also responsible for a number of training and accreditation programs throughout the livestock export supply chain that include; on-board stockperson training and accreditation, stevedore training and scabby mouth vaccinator training and accreditation.
These training programs aim to produce accredited stockpersons and vaccinators to the livestock export industry in accordance with the Australian Government regulations. If you would like to find out more about LiveCorp training programs please contact us.
