Export standards review brought forward

24 May 2018

Minister for Agriculture David Littleproud has announced the review into the Australian Standards for the Export of Livestock will be brought forward.

The review was due at the end of 2019 but will now be finished by the end of this year.

The committee chair, Dr Chris Back, has notified the Department of Agriculture he is unable to continue in the role of Chair, due to the shortened timeframe and competing time commitments. 

Minister Littleproud thanks Mr Back for his contribution thus far.

A replacement Chair will be announced in the near future.​
