About the Australian Q Fever Register
The Australian Q Fever Register was established in 2002 by Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) to assist users to determine the Q Fever immune status of an individual, to prevent unnecessary testing, and to minimise the risk of exposing susceptible individuals to the organism in the workplace.
The Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC) took over ownership and management of the Q Fever Register from MLA in 2013
Authorised Users (primarily meat processors and medical practitioners) can check an individual’s Q Fever immune status, as well as submit screening test and vaccination details of individuals to the Register. The Register data is stored on a 'live' database linked to the Internet to allow users to access up-to-date information.
The Register is owned and funded by the AMPC and is currently managed by AUS-MEAT Limited www.ausmeat.com.au on behalf of the industry.
