MICoR (meat) sets out importing country requirements that differ from relevant Australian Standards, that must be met to gain market access for edible and inedible meat, meat products and animal byproducts. Relevant Australian Standards are set out in ELMER 3.
MICoR (meat) also sets out importing country documentation requirements.
Meat export establishments must be export-registered, and must conform to Australian Standards and Australian monitoring programs such as the National Residue Survey (NRS) and E. coli and Salmonella Monitoring Program (ESAM).
Exporters should seek other sources of information on commercial specifications for meat imported into a particular country.
Due to the August 2014 MICoR upgrade, some pages display the date of ‘last update’ as a date in July or August 2014. These dates were applied when the system was upgraded and therefore do not necessarily reflect the last date that the page was updated. Exporters should not rely on this date to determine when changes to importing country requirements have occurred. The department encourages all exporters to contact officials from the country of import, either through the importer or directly, to confirm that their product meets the current importing country requirements.
