LPA Rules & Standards

The LPA program operates under Rules and Standards agreed to and maintained by the LPA Advisory Committee (LPAAC). Accredited producers must operate in accordance with these, and agree to do so as part of the accreditation process.

LPA Rules

The LPA Rules set out the requirements for participation in the LPA Program. Click here to view the current LPA Rules document.

The current LPA Rules (V1.17) include changes to reflect that Integrity Systems Company Limited (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Meat & Livestock Australia) now administers the LPA program. This change will come into effect on 9 June 2017.

Under the LPA rules each producer acknowledges that:
a) Integrity Systems Company Limited administers the LPA;

b) these Rules evidence a binding legal agreement between each Producer and Integrity Systems Company Limited; and any reference to rights or obligations of the Committee under these Rules, includes, rights and obligations of Integrity Systems Company.

LPA Standards

The LPA Standards are based on the seven program elements and are the approved standards for the LPA program. Click here to view the current LPA Standards document (V20)

The LPA Standards are based upon seven key areas:

  1. Property risk assessment
  2. Safe and responsible animal treatments
  3. Stock foods, fodder crops, grain and pasture treatments
  4. Preparation for dispatch of livestock
  5. Livestock transactions and movements
  6. Biosecurity
  7. Animal welfare

A draft version of the LPA standards including Biosecurity & Animal welfare are available here for review and will be finalised in September 2017.
