Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Animal Identification Schemes
No third parties are provided with access to the Department’s Animal Identification and Movement (AIM) system without the requisite consent of the herd keeper or where there is a legal basis to provide pertinent information. The provision of access on AIM to meat processors is restricted to information on the specific bovine animals presented for slaughter as required by the Food Business Operator (FBO).
I can confirm that FBOs do not have access to AIM data in relation to the other animals on the holding of a keeper presenting animals to that slaughter plant.
