On-farm assurance programs

ISC manages and delivers the Australian red meat industry’s three key on-farm assurance and through-chain traceability programs:

National Vendor Declarations

LPA and NLIS double diamond The NVD is a legal document that both guarantees the safety of red meat products and enables the traceability of those products along each link in the value chain.

The eNVD web-based system and eNVD mobile app are available for LPA accredited producers, feedlots and value chain stakeholders to use. Digital consignments are fast, easy and more accurate than paper forms, delivering time and efficiency savings.

Take a look at the videos below to learn how to use the eNVD web-based system and mobile app.

Alternately, hard copy NVD books can be purchased in your LPA account via myMLA.
