AEMIS establishes the processes that will provide trading partners certainty regarding meat inspection and food safety verification compliance.

AEMIS was established as part of the Australian Government’s Export Certification Reform Package, by the Meat Ministerial Task Force (MTF), which comprises industry and AQIS representatives.

The aim of the reform is to provide a world–class export certification system based on improved Australian legislation.

AEMIS is underpinned by a suite of legislative instruments and fees and charges which will be tabled in parliament.

These changes will ensure Australia remains at the forefront of export inspection and provide greater assurance to our international markets of the integrity and safety of our meat exports.
