The Minister’s introduction of the Bill to establish the Inspector General for Live Animal Exports today reflects clear alignment in terms of industry reform and enhancing regulatory transparency.
An independent Inspector General of Live Animal Exports will support the industry’s commitment to improved welfare practices of exported animals.
We have called for the introduction of an Inspector General to oversee independence and cultural change in our industry, for both exporters and the industry regulator.
The livestock export industry is determined to continually achieve improvements in the industry’s sustainability and animal welfare outcomes, building on the genuine care producers, exporters and importers have for the animals in the supply chains.
“I look forward to working closely with Mr Carter. The industry stands ready to assist in any way,” says Mark Harvey-Sutton ALEC CEO.
