Export Slaughter Intervals (ESI's)
An Export Slaughter Interval (ESI) is the time that should
elapse between administration of a veterinary chemical to animals
and their slaughter for export.
The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority
(APVMA) is responsible for updating export slaughter intervals
(ESI) and withholding periods (WHP). Current ESI and WHP
information can be viewed on the APVMA website.
Withholding Periods (WHP's)
The withholding period (WHP) is the minimum period which must
elapse between last administration or application of a veterinary
chemical product, including treated feed, and the slaughter,
collection, harvesting or use of the animal commodity for human
consumption. WHPs are mandatory for domestic slaughter and on the
label of every registered product.
