Dairy Export Registration Manual (DERM) – The DERM is a tool, designed by the Commonwealth Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry and the Dairy Export Assurance Program (DEAP) to assist new and existing dairy manufacturers, building capability, knowledge and understanding of the requirements to become export eligible. The DERM achieves this goal by breaking down each auditable element, providing practical examples, scenario based self-assessment questions and additional external resources, broadening your food safety understanding when developing your approved arrangement (food safety plan).

Dairy Export Assurance Program (DEAP)
The Dairy Export Assurance Program is an exciting opportunity for the Government, state regulatory agencies and industry to co–design a more robust and inclusive regulatory framework for the dairy export industry. The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment is partnering with Dairy Australia to deliver three projects within the Dairy Exports Assurance Program.

DEAP is sponsored by The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet through the Deregulation taskforce. This funding is the first major investment into the export sector for over a decade and provides a once in a generation opportunity to refresh and modernise the regulation of dairy exports.

The projects are:

  1. Identifying the regulatory hurdles for domestic dairy manufacturers to become an approved establishment.
  2. Food safety in commercial assurance programs.
  3. Working towards reduced regulatory intervention through improved data.

As part of the DEAP, we are also offering a free export facilitator service to provide tailored assistance to dairy manufacturers looking to become export registered. The service is also available to assist dairy manufacturers that are already export registered and are now looking for new opportunities. For more information you can follow this link.

Work on the Dairy Export Assurance Program has begun, the department will be working with stakeholders to ensure that the modernising of the export system remains fit for purpose into the future. The department will provide progress updates to industry throughout the project. To learn more about DEAP and follow our progress please register for updates on the projects Have Your Say page.
