A compliance program, designed to strengthen live animal exporters' oversight of sheep, The Livestock Global Assurance Program (LGAP) has been described as a world-first audit and assessment program for livestock exports, with increased auditing and monitoring scrutiny as livestock move through feedlots and abattoirs. BUT...Chief executive of ALEC, Mark Harvey-Sutton, said it was too hard and risky to roll the program out under present conditions.
So, this industry manages to keep exports going during Covid - but can't manage compliance checking. If they cant guarantee compliance and acknowledge the need for such, then live exports should also be put on hold as too risky.
