AP E-cert is primarily based on tracking the market eligibility and status of animal products from the time they are produced until they are exported. The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has created legislation that sets out general requirements that must be met in order for honey and other bee products to be eligible
for export. Once eligible for export, some export markets require an official government assurance that consignments meet OMAR requirements. This course provides you with an overview of the AP-Ecert system, the official assurances, market requirements and how to meet them.
Ensure you are able to meet your legislative requirements and track the market eligibility of your product(s)
