Meat Messaging Documentation

This section of the Meat Messaging website provides technical information on how Meat Messaging works as well as general information and support tools.

What is the "Meat Message" system and who can use it?

The "Meat Messaging" system is based on the GS1 standards for numbering and bar coding of meat products and the GS1 EANCOM electronic message standards. Refer to the GS1 organisation in your country for details on the GS1 standards.

The "Meat Messaging" system is an online tool for the creation, sending, receiving, attestation statements and compliance declaration of meat products (carton, carcases, carcase portions, pallets, bulk packs and containers) GS1 EANCOM messages. These messages assist regulatory authorities with the authenticity, verification and traceability of meat products. The GS1 bar coding standards and GS1 EANCOM electronic message standards do not replace existing regulatory requirements, they assist and supplement these requirements.

For more details on regulations on export eligibility and requirement for export contact the relevant government representatives in your country.
