Industry advice notice – China trade (added 6 November 2020)
Micor (Dairy) sets out the known certification and importing country requirements that must be met in order to gain market access for milk and milk products (including colostrum). This includes products that are intended for human consumption, products that require further manufacturing before they are fit for human consumption, and products that are not intended for human consumption, such as animal feed, and technical products.
Establishments that produce milk and milk products intended for human consumption that require official certification that refers to Australia's export legislation must be export-registered, and must conform to the Approved Arrangement requirements of the
Export Control (Milk and Milk Product) Rules 2021 (this includes both the manufacturer and storage facilities).
Non-prescribed goods) sets out the requirements for processed foods with dairy minor ingredients where they are known. In many cases, a manual declaration and generic certificate of condition (EX188B) is available which may meet importing country requirements. Processed foods with minor dairy ingredients that have been processed in export-registered dairy establishments may be able to be exported on an electronic version of this declaration and certificate of condition (ZD001). If exporters choose to use a declaration and certificate of condition for these products, they must check the suitability of this document with their importer.
