Annual BSE update

The OIE’s template of Information Required for Annual Update (2019 version) has been adopted to facilitate the provision of information for the annual BSE update.
When relevant, the submission of annual BSE update must also:
  1. describe how imported cattle are monitored, slaughtered and processed, and what disposal mechanisms are practiced for such cattle; and
  2. describe any exceptional circumstances that have occurred in relation to BSE controls or changes to BSE status in the country, for example, identification of any BSE cases or failures in control points along the supply chain.
Annual BSE updates must be submitted to the Australian BSE Food Safety Assessment Committee by 31 January via bse@foodstandards.gov.au.
