New version of the EADRA

05 Mar 2018

The latest version of the Emergency Animal Disease Response Agreement (EADRA) is now available on the AHA website.

The EADRA is a unique contractual arrangement signed in 2002 that brings together the Australian, state and territory governments and livestock industry groups to collectively and significantly increase Australia’s capacity to prepare for—and respond to—emergency animal disease (EAD) incursions.

The EADRA covers 66 categorised animal diseases and 23 Signatories to the Deed (governments and industry bodies).

The main benefit of the Agreement is the ability to respond quickly and effectively to an EAD incident while minimising uncertainty over management and funding arrangements.
