- Establishments that receive shipments using the Meat Messaging portal have the option of sending a simple CSV file to a set email address with a set subject line to fulfil the process of receiving a consignment. This option is most useful for establishments that have limited information about the consignment or limited information systems or software that prohibits communicating directly with the Meat Messaging portal.
- Once the Meat Messaging Portal receives the email, the data is processed and the establishment is sent an email with the summary of the consignment. The summary has the consignment verification details and any actions required.
- If the data file has an incorrectly formatted subject line or the CSV is incorrectly formatted the email sender is sent an error email with a summary of the error.
Sending the CSV file
The CSV file would be emailed by the establishment to the email address:
The subject line would be: Consignment received by user: 80000045
Where 80000045 is the user's meat messaging ID number.
CSV file structure
The CSV file has 4 columns:
- 0 = Good
- 1 = Missing Port Mark, if applicable
- 2 = Illegible Port Mark, if applicable
- 3 = Incorrect Port Mark, if applicable
- 9 = Damaged carton
Column headers are optional required.
The Port Mark is only included where it is applicable for the consignment. This would be export shipments to those countries that require port marks.
The Message ID is only included where the message ID is known at the time of scanning of the consignment.
At least a port mark or Message ID is required in the file for each barcode, except where one or more port marks are missing for a set of carton with port marks.
