Micor (meat) sets out importing country requirements that must be met to gain market access for edible and inedible meat, meat products and animal by-products. 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 comply with Australian standards and Australian monitoring programs such as the National Residue Survey (NRS) and National Carcase Microbiology Monitoring Program (formerly known as ESAM).

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. Exporters should seek other sources of information on commercial specifications for meat imported into a specific country.
