Dairy products for human consumption
Import risk review for dairy products for human consumption: draft report. Language(s): English. Number of pages: 140
The Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry has released the Import risk review for dairy products for human consumption: draft report (the review) for a 60-day consultation period.
The review aims to modernise Australia's dairy import conditions to reflect the current and future trading environment. It considers the biosecurity risks associated with importing (from any country) dairy products for human consumption manufactured from milk obtained from domestic cattle, buffalo, sheep, and goats. It takes into account new and relevant peer-reviewed scientific information, international standards, relevant changes in industry practices and operational practicalities.
The review identified six hazards of biosecurity concern for imported dairy products. We undertook risk assessments for each and proposed measures to manage the biosecurity risks. The draft report proposes expanded risk management options for countries not recognised by the department as free from foot-and-mouth disease and/or lump skin disease and/or sheep and goat pox.
