Biosecurity and traceability is a high priority for the Australian wool industry.
Australia has clearly defined emergency animal disease response plans and strong governance arrangements that ensure preparedness in the event of a biosecurity incursion. To be ‘world-leading’ implies constant improvement, and the Australian wool industry is actively investing to maintain the highest possible standards.
The Australian wool industry also has a comprehensive system for tracing wool back to where it was grown and harvested. While this meets our needs and the needs of our trading partners, efforts to enhance and future- proof our systems are underway.
