Further to MAA 2012/22, the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) provides the following update on the export market response following the detection of notifiable avian influenza in New South Wales (NSW).
This notice provides updated advice for the export of eggs and egg products to Indonesia.
Indonesia have advised that the current ban on poultry and poultry products (including eggs and egg products) imported from Australia will remain in place until the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) declares that Australia is free from HPAI subtype H7N7.
Until further notice, official certification is suspended for eggs and egg products exported to Indonesia.
DAFF will continue to take all possible action to minimise the effects of this disease incident on trade and will keep industry informed of further developments. However, exporters should note that even if health certificates are able to be issued, all eggs and egg products that are exported from Australia at this time to any market carries a risk of being rejected at port-of-entry. Trading partners may impose bans on poultry product sourced from the affected region, the state of NSW or the whole of Australia despite current health certification requirements.

The Commonwealth endeavours to keep information current and accurate, however, it may be subject to change without notice.
