MPI Livestock Export Review

The Ministry for Primary Industries is seeking submissions about exports of livestock from New Zealand. The MPI has no control over what happens to animals once they reach their intended destination. Currently regulations are that only animals to be used for breeding purposes are allowed to be exported.

It is very easy to make a submission and the easiest way is to complete the survey before 5pm on Wednesday, 22 January 2020. (This was extended from an original deadline of Monday 06 January 2020).

The review will consider 4 options:

  • new regulations which could totally ban specific types of livestock exports
  • new regulations which could conditionally ban specific types of livestock exports
  • new regulations to further enhance the livestock export system
  • new measures to continue to improve the system that are generally within existing law.

You can complete an online submission or email or post your comments.
When making a submission, you can choose whether to include:

  • your name and title
  • your organisation's name – if you are submitting on behalf of an organisation
  • your contact details – phone number, address and email.

You can comment on some or all of the options, answer some or all of the survey questions, or tell the MPI anything else you think they should know about the issues.

End date 5pm on Wednesday, 22 January 2020
