PCAS is a certification program and as such, producers are required to undertake independent annual on-site audits in order to retain certification.
AUSMEAT is approved for auditing and certifying under PCAS and can be contacted on:
Phone:1800 621 903
Phone: (07) 3361 9200
Fax: (07) 3361 9222
Producers should make their own enquiries to AUS-MEAT as to audit costs and the timing of audits in your area so you can be provided with an audit quote.
In order to obtain a quote and a likely timeframe for the audit, you will need to download and complete the PCAS Pre-Audit Application form and submit it to AUS-MEAT. This form is also available on the Certified Pasturefed website.
Your options in completing and submitting the PCAS Pre-Audit Application form are:
1) Complete the form onscreen, save to your computer and then either:
a. Email; or
b. Print and fax or mail.
2) Print the blank form, complete by hand and then fax or mail.
AUS-MEAT will provide return details for the form after you have discussed arrangements with them.
