Reprimand issued to Australasian Global Exports Pty Ltd The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (Department) has issued a reprimand to the licensed livestock exporter Australasian Global Exports Pty Ltd (AGE). This action follows an investigation into the sourcing and preparation of a consignment of livestock for export to the People’s Republic of China in August 2019.
The Department was not satisfied that the AGE consignment met the importing country requirements.... AGE did not have sufficient systems or controls in place to ensure that livestock sourced for export met the importing country requirements.....AGE was not able to identify and address irregularities in the timelines relating to the collection, and submission for testing, of blood samples from livestock in the consignment.
THEY ISSUED A REPRIMAND....oh you naughty exporters.....tut tut.
The Department has confidence in Australia’s regulatory systems
WE DONT....and we certainly dont have confidence in the Department!
