After a thorough investigation and show cause process, the Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources has cancelled the livestock export licence of Emanuel Exports. This comes after 2,400 sheep died from heat stress onboard the livestock carrier ‘Awassi Express’ in August 2017.
Australia’s Department of Agriculture and Water Resources suspended the live export licence of the company implicated in the death of 2,400 sheep from heat stress onboard the livestock carrier ‘Awassi Express’ in August 2017. The licence will remain suspended pending a full review of the company’s response to a show cause notice.
On the aftermath of the death of 2,400 sheep from heat stress on the livestock carrier ‘Awassi Express’, Australia will require ships carrying live cattle and sheep exports to have an independent observer to ensure welfare standards. The country will also introduce new legislation to penalise any exporter that violates these standards.
