Australia has access to Switzerland High Quality Beef (SHQB)
imports - item 0201.20/22 of the Swiss Customs Tariff. The
specification requirements of SHQB are detailed in the customs
document and should be verified with the Importer. AUS-MEAT will
approve and audit the SHQB production program at individual
establishments. Establishments wishing to send SHQB to Switzerland
must have an approved program incorporated into their Approved
Arrangement. A Certificate of Authenticity produced by AUS-MEAT
will accompany the Health Certificate.
The Department of Agriculture will have direct oversight
and audit AUS-MEAT in relation to SHQB. If an establishment seeks
to produce SHQB they must be listed for both the European Union and
Switzerland; the product must also satisfy some additional
requirements which can be obtained from AUS-MEAT. Establishments
wishing to produce SHQB should contact AUS-MEAT for approval.
Companies will need to apply to AUS-MEAT to have access to the
On-Line Certification service and AUS-MEAT will issue login details
to allow access to this service. Certificates will be signed and
stamped by authorised AUS-MEAT personnel before collection and
delivery to the Department of Agriculture. AUS-MEAT Verification
audits will be conducted during the year to ensure compliance with
the SHQB specification requirements.
Only one AUS-MEAT SHQB Certificate shall be issued for each lot
or consignment. Each Certificate must be countersigned by
Department of Agriculture.
Certifications Costs: $150 per Certificate.
(Certificates will be delivered to
the Department of Agriculture Brisbane Office for Department
of Agriculture approval.)
