Protocol last negotiated

JAN/AUG 1991

Special conditions

On advice from the Chief Veterinary Officer (CVO) dated 25 July 2002, Australia is expected to regain country freedom from Newcastle Disease on 24 November 2002.
Therefore, based on the advice from the CVO, exports of birds/bird products to countries that require Country Freedom, are effectively unable to be certified until at least 24 November 2002.



Exporters are advised that Vanuatu can only accept country freedom for Newcastle Disease. Please check with AQIS before undertaking preparation of the consignment to ascertain whether this condition can be met.

These conditions are officially classified as DRAFT but are likely to form the basis on any conditions which will be included on the Import Permit.

The conditions are the same for day-olds and hatching eggs. However, the specific health conditions are different for chicks (chickens, turkeys and other avians) [January 1991], ducks [January 1991], and quail and guinea fowl [August 1991]. These differences are indicated as appropriate in the conditions.

The flock from which the eggs were collected for hatching is inspected by the veterinary authority within 3 months of export with all relevant health records being examined.
