Export control marking for meat and meat products
DAWR or Export Control Marks are marked labels that are applied to products exported out of Australia. Controlled by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, companies need to have a DAWR/AQIS Export Certification and an approved up-to-date license to obtain a certified mark and to export meat/meat products.
The approved information that needs to be included on a DAWR meat export label is;

Carton seals require:
If a carton seal is broken on inspection in Australia and approved for export, a new carton seal will be applied that notifies the country it's being exported to of its inspection
Different countries require different marks
There are strict requirements that need to be met to comply with all DAWR and exporting regulations. To help ensure that these regulations are met, and products aren’t rejected when exported – resulting in large costs for business – implementing iDSnet can help monitor and safeguard the product, marks and labels being printed and applied to exported goods.
With iDSnet software every print is recorded for both exported and non-exported goods. This means that if your product gets rejected due to not meeting regulations, all information of the product and its history on the production line can be obtained including;
As Matthews and our iDSnet software solution are authorized manufacturers of DAWR approved marks, we can help guide, print and monitor your businesses exporting marks.
Investing in iDSnet software can significantly reduce the overall costs of printing and applying DAWR meat official export marks, as you no longer need to pay for each printed label. This can help decrease costs associated with exported meat products as you only need to pay for the initial investment of the software and labels, rather than pay-per-print. This allows you to quickly make a return on your business investment.
