The Meat Board developed standard operating procedures in an effort to ensure the financial sustainability of the central veterinary laboratory for conducting the tests needed for export certification of livestock, meat and meat products.  These procedures imply that exporters will have to pay an amount for the reagents and materials needed for testing at the Meat Board before the laboratory will release the test results. This amount will be calculated on a cost-recovery basis.  Payments at the laboratory will continue as is and will not be influenced by this ruling. The planned implementation date is 01 June 2019.  The Meat Board is of the opinion that export markets still play a critical role in the success of the Namibian livestock and meat industry and the export-certification of these commodities should be made possible at all costs.

Important Notice

The Meat Board of Namibia would like to inform all cattle producers and ear tag agents that the official Standard Ear Tags are out of stock and are expected to be available during the second week (6-10th) of May 2019. However, the Maxi Tags are available in stock and over the counter sales and electronic orders allowable will only be 50 ear tags or less; until the stock levels are back to normal.

We apologize for any inconvenience that the shortage of stock may or have caused.

Thank you for understanding.
