The European Union Cattle Accreditation Scheme (EUCAS) is a
national animal production scheme that guarantees full traceability
of all animals through the National Livestock Identification System
(NLIS), linking individual animal identification to a central
database. EUCAS allows Australia to meet the European Union (EU)
market requirements for beef by segregating cattle that have never
been treated with hormonal growth promotants (HGPs) at any
EUCAS accredited farms are audited on both a random and targeted
basis. EUCAS accredited Feedlots and Saleyards are audited annually
and their ongoing accreditation depends on a successful audit. If a
Farm, Feedlot or Saleyard is found not to be complying with the
requirements of the scheme Rules, EUCAS reserves the right to
revoke its accreditation. For further information on EUCAS
accreditation contact the EUCAS toll free helpline Monday to Friday
AEST (8am-4pm). Phone 1800 305 544, or email the EUCAS
Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
