eNVD System Upgrade Enhances Accessibility for Supply Chain


  • The electronic National Vendor Declaration (eNVD) system and app have been upgraded for better accessibility, responding to industry feedback with 13 new features.
  • The upgrade facilitates seamless use across the supply chain, including transporters, agents, and processors, with improved functionality and user experience.
  • Integrity Systems Company (ISC) aims to support the industry’s transition from paper to digital consignments, with resources and webinars available for users.

On 6 March 2024, the Integrity Systems Company (ISC), a subsidiary of Meat & Livestock Australia, announced significant upgrades to the electronic National Vendor Declaration (eNVD) web-based system and mobile app. This enhancement comes as a direct response to industry feedback, aiming to make the system more accessible to all users within the supply chain, including livestock transporters, agents, sale yards, feedlots, and processors.

The eNVD system, which facilitates the digital submission and sharing of livestock consignments, now boasts 13 new features that improve its functionality and user experience. These features were designed to align the web-based system and mobile app, allowing for a smooth transition between consignments created on either platform.

Notably, the eNVD Livestock Consignments app, launched in November 2022, has seen significant adoption with 30,000 downloads, indicating a growing preference for digital over paper-based consignments.

Key enhancements include expanded access for various supply chain participants, the ability for transport companies to assign multiple drivers to long-haul consignments, and the option to grant third-party access for viewing and sharing consignments. Additionally, users can now comment on consignments, attach food safety and statutory declarations, and easily access eNVDs through a direct link on the myMLA dashboard.

ISC Chief Executive Officer Jo Quigley highlighted the importance of these upgrades in streamlining business and livestock management processes across the supply chain. The improvements are seen as a crucial step in the industry’s ongoing shift from paper to digital NVDs, enhancing the overall efficiency and compliance of livestock consignments.

To support users in adapting to these changes, ISC is hosting demonstration webinars for producers, agents, saleyards, transporters, and processors throughout March. These sessions aim to showcase the new eNVD features and provide additional support resources.

The latest version of the eNVD Livestock Consignments app is available for free download on the App Store and Google Play Store, ensuring that all supply chain participants can benefit from the enhanced system.
