Traceability

Transaction Certificate System

The NewMerino® Traceability and Transaction Certificate System requires no work by the brand. We build the information using the commercial documentation as the transactions proceed in the normal manner. This information is available to the brand at any time.

For a supply chain to be truly transparent the parties to the transaction must be prepared to share information in an open and cooperative spirit, to the benefit of all the participants and with the interest of building long term relationships and mutually beneficial relationships.

Certificate of Origin & Attributes

You do not have genuine NewMerino® certified wool unless you hold a NewMerino® Certificate of Origin & Attributes for the current supply.

The NewMerino® verification system has a document trail from the spinner back to the individual farmers who have contributed to the processing batch. These documents are interconnected and prove the provenance of the wool and the conditions under which it has been produced and processed.

On Farm Certification

Supporting the supply chain transaction documents shown below, there is a series of standards, on-farm protocols and declarations covering animal welfare and land management standards. These are verified by on-farm audits.

It is the availability of these interlinking documents that demonstrates that your supply is authentic and meets the stated attributes for animal welfare and land management. Click the link below to see a graphic of the documentation system.
