Australian Office Statement

17 October 2014

The Australian Office informed Taiwan government authorities of the following information concerning five shipments of tallow imported by Namchow.

The Australian Government Department of Agriculture has investigated and has confirmed the five shipments that were the subject of Taiwan authorities’ enquiry met the requirements of the certificate agreed on 13 August 2014 with Taiwan’s Food and Drug Administration for unrefined edible tallow (Declaration and Certificate for Shipments of Tallow for Further Processing). Should it have been a requirement at the time of export, the Department would have certified this product using this certificate. That is, they were suitable to export for use in food production.

The use of words “for Industry Use” need not connote a non-edible product as it may relate to use in the food or any other industry. This unfamiliar English usage may have given rise to some misunderstanding. “Industry Use” is not the same as “Industrial Use”.

We have told Taiwan Authorities that the Department of Agriculture understands that, in this case, the goods were not intended for industrial use.
