RMSCC Supply Chain Information Standard
|Standard:||Plant Bovine Slaughter Export Industry Standard Data Set|
|Status:||'D' Draft - Awaiting industry consultation and feedback|
|Issue date:||DRAFT issued 19th November 2020|
|Authority:||Australian Meat Industry Language and Standards Committee AMILSC|
This purpose of the standard is to define a consistent supply chain approach to reporting bovine slaughter and chiller assessment data from processing slaughter establishment (plants), to those entities authorised to receive the data.
The standard defines the data set to be passed along the supply chain rather than the data transport method. There is a CSV example defined for the purpose of simplicity. The data in a CSV format is considered the simplest and easiest transport method for plants to provide data to the largest number of data consumers.
The use of JSON, XML and other data transport formats is considered to be determined on a use case basis. The decision for the transport format and transport method would be defined on a specific supply chain commercial basis.
The Plant Bovine Slaughter Export Industry Standard Data Set usage includes:
The Plant Bovine Slaughter Export Industry Standard Data Set covers the type of data to be collected by plants at the following stages:
The Plant Bovine Slaughter Export Industry Data Set does not include the following:
This specification does not define the MSA grading data outcome field specification. For details on the MSA grading outcome specification refer to the MSA Standards.
The attributes defined in the Plant Bovine Slaughter Export Industry Standard Data Set are grouped by function, with references related to those functions.

Structure of the National Standard
The technical structure of the Plant Bovine Slaughter Export Industry Standard Data Set is defined to report on individual animal records. An individual animal key is comprised of the processing plant identification, kill date, chain number and body number. This combination of keys cannot repeat in a dataset. How individual systems manage the reuse of the individual animal key combination in different data payloads is not defined within this standard. However suitable business process functions need to be implemented to manage these occurrences.
The data elements of the standard have the usage defined as:
The data set type and the version are included in the technical structure of the Plant Bovine Slaughter Export Industry Standard Data Set. A change history is maintained for each data set type.
Details on the individual data element for the Plant Bovine Slaughter Export Industry Standard Data Set specification can be found here: Specifications for Plant Bovine Slaughter Export Industry Standard
Many data importing systems are case sensitive for attribute names and data values. Case sensitivity should be taken into consideration for any data exporting, data transport and data importing systems.
