This footage shows alleged non-compliances with ESCAS in Oman, in particular sheep outside of approved supply chains. To remediate this, the two exporters with sheep in Oman have rapidly deployed staff to investigate and address the supply chain issues. ALEC and the exporters continue to work closely with the regulator on this issue.
ESCAS regulatory requirements are an important welfare measure that Australian exporters are proud of. While we wait for an impartial investigation by DAFF, exporters will continue to improve standards through rapidly addressing breaches of ESCAS as soon as possible.
