This decision reflects the recommendations of the Farmer Review and Industry-Government Working Groups.

The regulatory framework will be implemented in stages, with 75 per cent of trade covered by the end of February 2012, 99 per cent of trade by the end of August 2012 and all trade covered by the end of 2012.

Recognising the impact that the regulatory framework will have on a range of stakeholders, the government is releasing exposure drafts of the orders for consultation with the community.

Comments on the orders for the regulatory framework for livestock exports can be given until 20 January 2012. Comments should be sent to [email protected].
