Australia sets new rules for dairy exporters

/ 07:49 AM January 08, 2024

MANILA,  Philippines  —The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) on Friday reminded local exporters of dairy products to take note of Australia’s updated rules to ensure compliance and continued market access.

In an advisory, the DTI said Australia in November last year revised its import regulations for dairy. Products that have less than 10 percent dairy content no longer need approval from the Australian Department of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Forestry.

“However, a manufacturer’s declaration or food product label stating that dairy content is less than 10 percent by dry weight (excluding added water) is required for biosecurity compliance,” the DTI said.


According to the government agency, the Philippines exported $56,000 worth of dairy products to Australia in 2022. This is equivalent to about P3 million.

In another advisory, the DTI also noted the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) had recently released rules outlining requirements and processes in registering and listing of cosmetic product facilities and products entering their country.

“This means that every person who owns or operates a facility that engages in the manufacturing or processing of a cosmetic product for distribution in the US must register each facility with the US FDA. Additionally, for each cosmetic product, the responsible person must submit to the US FDA a cosmetic product listing,” the DTI said.

The facilities are required to renew their registrations every two years. INQ
