Developing A Consistent Approach to NLIS Practices in Meat Processing - Stage 1

During 2012, AMPC and MLA funded a project to develop accredited training programs to assist meat processing plants to meet their National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) requirements. The project was driven by an increasing desire on the part of regulators and industry to achieve a higher level of compliance with NLIS requirements.

The importance of the NLIS for the biosecurity of the Australian livestock industry and meeting importing country requirements is well established and an accepted prerequisite for having a sustainable and viable red meat industry.
