International Animal Product Export Regulations



If you have any questions or concerns regarding these regulations for exporting animals or animal products to a foreign country, you should contact the VS Field Office in the State from which the animals or products will be exported.

Manufacturer’s Certificates or Declarations

To request endorsement of export certificates for Australia that include a Manufacturer’s Certificate (or Declaration), manufacturers/exporters must provide the documentation to the VS Area Office with an original signature. The color of the ink used for the signature must not be the same color as the text of the document. Electronic signatures are not acceptable. The VS Area Office will keep the original on file, and copy the Manufacturer’s Certificate onto security paper.

The Manufacturer’s Certificate (or Declaration) may be submitted on company letterhead stationery. This will meet Australia’s requirement for the manufacturer’s official seal or trademark to appear on the document.
