STANDARDS

AUS-MEAT develops, maintains and reviews accreditation standards in consultation with the Australian Meat Industry. The standards are designed to protect the reputation of AUS-MEAT, the integrity of the AUS-MEAT Language and the interest of the Australian Meat and Livestock Industry in relation to sales, distribution and export of Australian Meat and Livestock.

ACCREDITATION PROGRAMS

AUS-MEAT offers accreditation programs for abattoirs, boning rooms (packer Enterprises). All export abattoirs and boning rooms must be accredited by AUS-MEAT under Federal Legislation.

Establishments wishing to be accredited by AUS-MEAT must implement an AUS-MEAT approved quality management system designed to ensure consistency of quality and accurate product description.
