This instrument prohibits the holder of a sheep export licence from exporting a consignment of live sheep from Australia on a vessel travelling by sea during the period of 1 June 2019 and 31 August 2019 inclusive if the intended voyage were to travel through waters in the Arabian Sea north of latitude 11o N at any time during the voyage. This prohibition is intended to ensure the long term sustainability of the live-export trade by prohibiting the export of live sheep by sea where the protection of the health, condition and welfare of sheep during the hottest months of the northern hemisphere summer cannot be assured.
