About the Livestock Production Assurance (LPA) Program

The LPA Program is the Australian livestock industry's on-farm food safety certification program.

The LPA Standards are primarily associated with on-farm food safety guidelines, which underpin food safety declarations in the suite of LPA National Vendor Declarations (NVDs) which include Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Bobby Calf and EU.

The LPA NVD in turn is the principle document by which information regarding the food safety residue history of livestock is transferred from one property to another and from one producer to another; through agents, saleyards, feedlots, exporters and end users including processors and retailers.

AUS-MEAT has been involved with the LPA program since its introduction in 2004 and is currently responsible for conducting audits of LPA Accredited Producers on behalf of the program owner (NLIS Limited).

Further information about the LPA Program is available on the LPA Website
