Australia’s red meat safety systems cover the entire production supply chain, from on farm and at the feedlot, at the saleyard, during transportation and during processing and distribution.
The Livestock Production Assurance (LPA) program is the on-farm assurance program that underpins market access for Australian red meat.
The National Feedlot Accreditation Scheme (NFAS) is an independently audited quality assurance scheme for Australia’s feedlot industry.
Australia’s saleyards operate under the National Saleyard Quality Assurance (NSQA) program.

The Australian government regulates the food industry so that food is safe to eat. The government works with Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) to develop our food regulatory system, which is enforced by state and territory governments and covers the processing and distribution of Australian red meat.
