ESIS FOR OXYTETRACYCLINE AND CHLORTETRACYCLINE FOR EXPORT TO RUSSIA

The government/industry body SAFEMEAT has applied a Provisional Russian Export Slaughter Interval (ESI) of 90 days to products containing oxytetracycline and/or chlortetracycline.

To meet the requirements for slaughter of sheep or cattle for the Russian meat market, producers using these products must observe the terms of the SAFEMEAT notice, http://www.safemeat.com.au , before a claim of Russian eligible can be written on the Livestock Production Assurance (LPA) National Vendor Declaration (NVD).

 

For Russian Market Access

Detection of oxytetracycline or chlortetracycline residues in meat or offal in Russia will result in the meat processor, and potentially Australia, being banned from that market. Russia is Australia's fourth most important market.

To meet Russian market access requirements SAFEMEAT has implemented a 90 day Provisional Russian Export Slaughter Interval (ESI) for prescribed veterinary medicines and feed additives containing oxytetracycline or chlortetracycline effective 1 January 2012. Specific products may have a shorter ESI check the SAFEMEAT website www.safemeat.com.au

Producers must declare the status of their livestock against this ESI by correctly completing the LPA NVD.

MARKETING LIVESTOCK AS RUSSIAN ELIGIBLE

If you do not use prescribed veterinary medicines or feed additives containing oxytetracycline or chlortetracycline you must write the words Russian Eligible on the LPA NVD. Use Question 9 for cattle, Question 8 for EU cattle and Question 7 for sheep.

If you use prescribed veterinary medicines or feed containing oxytetracycline or chlortetracycline and comply with the 90 day Provisional Russian Export Slaughter Interval you must write the words Russian Eligible on the LPA NVD. Use Question 9 for cattle, Question 8 for EU cattle, and Question 7 for sheep.

Where Russian Eligible is written on the LPA NVD it means that the livestock have not been injected with a prescribed veterinary medicine containing oxytetracycline or ingested feed containing chlortetracycline in the last 90 days.

OBSERVE BEST PRACTICE DRUG ADMINISTRATION

If you use prescribed veterinary products containing oxytetracycline administer the treatment in the upper neck region only, as per label instructions. For feed additives containing chlortetracycline you must follow label directions accurately.

WHEN CANT LIVESTOCK BE MARKETED AS RUSSIAN ELIGIBLE?

Do not write the words Russian Eligible on the LPA NVD if livestock have been injected with a prescribed veterinary medicine containing oxytetracycline or fed with feed additives containing chlortetracycline in the last 90 days.

MORE INFORMATION?

Animal health treatments containing oxytetracycline or chlortetracycline are being assessed for lower slaughter intervals, and when available will be published on the SAFEMEAT website www.safemeat.com.au

For the latest updates, including a list of prescribed veterinary products containing oxytetracycline or chlortetracycline, go to www.safemeat.com.au or contact your veterinarian.

What are Export Slaughter Interval (ESI) and Withholding Periods (WHP) for Cattle? PDF Print E-mail

 

An Export Slaughter Interval (ESI) is the minimum time that should elapse between administration of a veterinary chemical to animals and their slaughter for export. ESIs manage differences between Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) allowed for chemicals in Australia and the MRLs of its trading partners. ESI advice is particularly important for quality assurance schemes, and especially for producers filling out the National Vendor Declaration (NVD) forms as part of the whole-of-chain management of exported product. ESIs have been agreed to by the cattle industry and the registrant of the veterinary chemical.

 

The Withholding Period (WHP) is the minimum period which must elapse between last administration or application of a veterinary chemical product, including treated feed, and the slaughter, collection, harvesting or use of the animal commodity for human consumption. WHPs are mandatory for domestic slaughter and are on the label of every registered product.

 

For individual product ESI and WHP check the product label or the back page of your NVD book.
