3 1. INTRODUCTION The Plant Export Operations Branch has developed a set of export compliance, approval and running records which must be used by Authorised Officers (AOs) nationally. The table below lists the records: Record Purpose Legislation Record the results of inspections for export compliance of Prescribed Grain, Seeds, Nuts, Hay and Straw, Baled Cotton and Forest Products.

4 2. HOW TO ACCESS, COMPLETE AND SUBMIT RECORDS The records have been published in the resources section of the Plant Export Operations Manual on the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources website. It is the responsibility of each AO to ensure that the correct version of the records are being used to document inspection results and that the record is filled out correctly as set out in this user guide. Failure to comply may result in action by the department including revocation of the AO s appointment. Immediately after completing the inspection the AO must complete the appropriate records and provide a copy to the client and send a copy to the address as per section 2.1 of this user guide. The AO must also keep the original inspection record. White out cannot be used on records. Any necessary amendments must be crossed out neatly, initialled and dated. Dittos are permitted on records as long as the information is exactly the same and the dittos clearly communicate the required information. e.g. commodity, source, line identification, silo number, inspection level and passed columns. When all details have been completed, any blank space below results must be ruled off. Ruling through or ruling off blank spaces is important to prevent the unauthorised addition of details to the record. A signed record is a declaration by an AO as to the suitability for export of the plants or plant products, container or vessel. An AO who has not carried out the inspection cannot make changes to a record originally signed by another AO address All completed Export Compliance Records, Container Approval Records and Bulk Vessel Approval Records must be ed to the National Documentation Hub (NDH) at: 2.2 subject line You must use one of the subject lines below to submit records to the NDH: PE100 and PE101 Subject line: AO Inspection: AO Name - AO Number - RFP number - Exporter - Date of Departure. For example: AO Inspection: John Smith - AO RFP Top Exports - DOD PE102 Subject line: AO Inspection: AO Name - AO Number - RFP number - Exporter - Date of Departure. 6 July Authorised Officer Program Page 4 of 31
