Poultry legislation search tool
Australia has three levels of government – national, state and local. This multi-layer system, each with their own constitutions, governments, councils and laws, creates a multi-layer set of laws governing our industry. The structure and legislative powers of each of the levels of government are set out in the Australian constitution. In addition, laws and regulations are supported by Standards and Guidelines which define the minimum standards expected to meet our legal requirements.
This site brings together Australia’s legislation and Standards and Guidelines into a single, easily searchable location, allowing the user to quickly find relevant laws in relation to biosecurity, animal welfare and food safety for the Australian Chicken Meat industry.
